Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary is a great spot to capture some peace and tranquility. Birds of all types abound and there are nice man-made perches and huts to view them from. Arcadia has a nice variety of terrain for a place that's relatively small and all the trails are flat and easily managed. Part of it borders an oxbow of the Connecticut River so that probably explains the abundant bird life since the oxbow is a perfect habitat for the amazing frequent fliers who migrate through or take up residence. I highly recommend it and if you haven't been to Northampton, MA. that's also a good reason to go since it has small town charm mixed with a touch of big city life. Arcadia is five minutes from downtown.
