Greater Springfield Convention & Visitor’s Bureau is the official source of information about visiting Western Mass! Western Mass is a culturally rich, northeastern region characterized by the synergy of three distinct and exceptional counties: Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden. Within 40 miles north to south, it is a rural pioneer frontier and eclectic academia hub and an urban economic center. There is no region more fertile for the creation and fulfillment of ideas and experiences. Its where things are done for the first time.
Western Mass exists and always has for those with pioneering, irreverent, inventive, courageous and relentless spirits that will not rest until they have found their own first.
