  • Worth the hike and climb even in drizzly and cloudy weather. Limited parking. Each of the 4 levels provides a unique perspective. 
  • We found this wonderful spot outside Greenfield, MA, completely by accident. We decided to get off the freeway and take the back roads to Amherst on our way to visit Emily Dickinson's family estate. W...  read more »
  • Poet's site Tower is a great place to sit and contemplate the beauty of the region. I like to go alone, contemplate and think about life ... Worth at least a quick visit. 
  • I have to give 5 stars because Poets Seat Tower is a staple of Greenfield and it looks out over the Pioneer valley with year round views so spectacular words will not do justice. These are picture's of dawn .
  • PROS: Amazing view! Climb up to the top on a nice day. CONS: Can you drive up here? You can. You can also hike. It's up to you! But a little confusing the first time you visit.
  • Best place in town with a view of the whole thing...
  • The Town of Greenfield celebrates the 4th of July every year here. The fields line with Yummy food vendors, live musical entertainment, the Clam Shack, and gets larger every year. Sometimes they have train rides for the kids, bungee jumping and rock climbing walls. No fees for parking. Just park in the Beacon Field/Baystate Franklin Medical Center neighborhoods and follow the crowds. We generally get there about 6, find a spot to lay our blanket out, take a walk around to try out all the comfort foods, meet up with old friends, have dinner and relax until the fireworks begin. The pyrotechnics are set up on Poet Seat Tower and give you an amazing show year after year. A solid 30 or so minutes of breath taking entertainment follows. The Town of Greenfield's Recreation Department raises funds each year to hold thus event, so all donations are welcomed to continue this annual tradition. Come on out, and celebrate the Birth of America! The Greenfield Recorder or 98.3 fm WHAI will list the dates for said event each year.
  • Beautiful views.
