Visit Amherst Downtown!

The Amherst Business Improvement District (Amherst BID) invests its resources to improve downtown Amherst’s vibrancy, sustainability, and economic health.

Downtown Amherst is a unique blend of restaurants, shops, and cultural destinations wrapped in New England charm. The BID, in partnership with the Town, the University of Massachusetts, and Amherst College, aims to make downtown an even better place to live, do business, and visit!

The Amherst BID will be adding a little extra sparkle to downtown by lighting a third tree at the Merry Maple this year!
