Westfield is a medium-sized rural town nested in Pioneer Valley. Downtown offers lots of restaurants, shops, and the nearby Westfield State University. Westfield's location makes other nearby towns easily accessible -- we border seven other cities!
Good place to live! Sometimes it is very busy, especially in downtown,but everything is near to me. Good schools, good plaza,good people. My family loves Westfield.
