NYC to Amherest, MA

I am taking a leisurely drive from NYC to Amherest, Ma. What might be some worthwhile stops on the way? Also, any restaurant recommendations for the trip and in Amherest.

What day of the week are you going? Millbrook, NY is an interesting town. It has a farmers market on Saturday morning.
Also, of course, are any of the towns in the Bershires--Lenox, Great Barrington, etc.
And, finally, there the Shaker Village in Hancock, MA, in the Berkshires. A great place to spend a few hours.

What type of restaurants are you looking for in Amherst? For casual dining, Amherst Brewing Company isn't bad--their beer is very good. We also like Fitzwilly's in Northampton.

I am traveling up on Saturday so the farmers market is a possibility.
And, I was looking for more casual joints, but not chain places, so the Amherst Brewing Company might be just the place.

Amherst Brewing Co is good...I went to college in Amherst, so the following places are student-budget, but the food is excellent:

Antonio's pizza (best slice in the world)
Bueno Y Sano (fresh, inventive burritos)
Judie's (little more $$, great popovers, good lunch place)
Claudia's Cafe (good cappucino drinks and pastries)
Pinocchio's (pricey, but great Italian)
Black Sheep Cafe (great sandwiches and cookies)
These are all in the immediate downtown Amherst area.


There may be some newer places
