“Holyoke is a wonderful community nestled in the Pioneer Valley. The neighborhoods are nicely laid out with complimentary, historical architecture. They have their own public resources at lower prices than surrounding towns. There are plenty of sidewalks for walking your dog or taking a stroll. Holyoke is near a lovely mountain called Mount Tom and a wide river. There are plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities and access to the interstate.”Current resident review from Niche.com

“I’ve lived in Holyoke all my life and throughout the years of living here I have experienced many nice things. There are amazing hang out spots you can go with friends and family including Dam Cafe, which is one of my personal favorites. There are also many outdoor activities that are very enjoyable such as hiking up Mt Tom and seeing the beautiful view of all Holyoke. I, personally, have never had any safety issues. The environment is very lively and exciting.”Current resident review from Niche.com
