Springfield, Holyoke, and Points South

Founded in 1636, Springfield is the third-largest city in Massachusetts. It is the proud birthplace of basketball, Dr. Seuss, America’s first national armory, and the nation’s first successful gasoline-driven automobile. Springfield's attractions include live theater, a symphony, professional hockey, and a zoo.

Neighboring Holyoke has its own historical claim as the birthplace of volleyball, but is better known among students for its abundance of retail shopping.
