Visitor Information Center
If you are visiting your former college campus, perhaps coming to meet 'Emily' in person for the first time, or joining us for a night out, you are in the right place. Amherst Area is host to iconic, world-class museums, art & cultural experiences, global dining options to satisfy every pallet...and wallet, and a host to a trail system that includes miles of trails for every level hike imaginable.
Come visit us at the Visitors' Information Center in the heart of downtown Amherst, where we sit proudly across from the Town Common designed by the famous Frederick Law Olmstead, and from the Historic Amherst Town Hall, at 35 S. Pleasant Street. Whether you are new to the area, returning after a long hiatus, or a long-time resident, we can help you learn more about activities and events in the Amherst area. To plan your trip or visit, swing by the Visitors' Information Center for the facts, fliers, and a friendly face.
