5 Top Things to Do in West Springfield
1. Bnapoli Italian
When you want a fresh dining experience, Bnapoli Italian is where it’s at. With a locally sourced menu, they do their best to provide a boost to the economy by purchasing from farms in Western Massachusetts and ocean-fresh sources at the bay. We realize you expect great wine when dining Italian, and that’s why we recommend Bnapoli Italian with their selection of more than 100 kinds of wine to pair with. This restaurant is currently taking reservations, and they also offer online ordering for pickup and delivery.
2. Storrowton Village Museum
Take a step back in time by visiting Storrowton Village Museum. Wander the gardens, attend a blacksmithing class, schedule a weekend museum tour, or schedule a wedding or other special event. The gift shop is open for limited hours at this time and is always open during your workshop, museum tour, and other public events. Storrowton Tavern is an authentic restaurant where you can stop for a meal or a dessert, and there’s something on the menu for everyone. Tour time slots have limited capacity, so schedule your tour well in advance.
3. The Big E
Massachusetts is incredible in the fall, and there’s no better place to experience it than at The Big E. This exposition is a tradition that dates back many years, offering entertainment, shopping, rides, animals, crafts, and parades. Encompassing all six New England states, this fair offers fun for everyone.
During the fair’s off-season, you’ll still be able to find something to do at the exposition center. Agricultural shows, car shows, drive-in movies, farmer’s markets, trade shows, concerts, and more will keep your friends and family busy.
