Southampton is a cute small town in Western Massachusetts. It doesn't have much, but it has the essentials: a Dunkin Donuts, a Big Y, Pizza, Chinese food, etc. It also has a lovely little park, and a candle stick bowling alley. Southampton is a suburban area, but it is beautiful in the summer, as well as the fall, winter and spring months! It is a very safe place for families.
Home is where the heart is, and for me, Southampton is home. This town has raised me, forming my some of my earliest and happiest memories with its beautifully enriching scenery and kindhearted inhabitants. This close-knit small town is ideal, a family in itself that is a breath of fresh air. Upon entering this town, one feels more relaxed, adapting to the lifestyle immediately in the sense that here, the simpler pleasures like a sunset sky or a vast field adorned with a barn and horses, all set against the mountains, and one can instantly appreciate these aspects that are so much apart of the days here, days that I have cherished.
I love Southampton, however it isn't for everyone. It isn't always the most convenient. However if you are okay with traveling 10-15 minutes to a mall, grocery store or nightlife but want a quiet and safe neighborhood than Southampton is for you. It's one of the best areas in Western Massachusetts to raise a kid because of the safety, the land and allowing your kids to have endless outdoor activities.
