Living in North Adams, Massachusetts has been a decent experience these last 4 years, but I would not say that this is my forever home. This is a small town and the people are nice, but the town is also boring in my opinion. If you are the artsy type though, then you might fall in love with this area.
I myself enjoy a city that as tons of things going on. The kinds of things that offer people a variety of entertainment and that just is not found in this community. This area is very artsy and is actually home to a huge contemporary art museum. The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts is also located here. Like I said, this town is seriously artsy.
The best areas in North Adams, Massachusetts are the bars and restaurants. If you have any chance of having fun outside of the art scene, it will be at the local bar. It just seems as if this community caters to one type of person, more diversity is needed for people like me.
