Northampton is one of my favorite towns to spend time with girls or my husband in, so this is where we headed after tennis today. It has an artsy, eclectic vibe with tons of restaurants and shops. It has many venues for live music and art galleries around. It has every ethnicity of food imaginable in a small radius, so very walkable. We found the cheapest parking in town across from the Northampton Brewery, but bring quarters.
One of the reasons that this is such a great place to shop is that there really is everything here. I bought a present for my friend’s birthday tomorrow of a fair trade jewelry box and we all bought clothes, both preppy and eclectic. If you are looking to spruce up your house, artwork for sale abounds.
Last but not least, we had to grab something sweet. There are tons of chocolate and ice cream shops to choose from, but we chose Bubble Tea at the Limered Tea House. My friends had never tried it, but loved it. It is an interesting taste experience that I recommend a sweet drink with a little popping balls. Today I had the strawberry with lychee pops.
