Visiting UMass Travel Guide
[Image: avatar_38900.jpg?dateline=1433437557]

This is a short summary of game day links from UMass and others as TripAdvisor etc. The 2017 Football Gameday 101 and the changes for 2017 are the most important for game day atmosphere and explains parking. There are some links on places to eat and to stay and finally the Basketball Hall of Fame and at least one other family activity. Personally live 25 miles away and ask others to contribute.

Here is a link and a new, Jul 12th video on game day and changes for 2017, which includes charging $5 for parking in advance and $10 for game day.
Hope you can make.

Adding some additional links and generally eat at the Hanger, which is in walking distance to McGuirk. Have not gone there immediately after a football game thou and like the dry rubs, believe it's a cajun something rub and one of the porter 22 oz beers.

The Amherst Guide from a specific event has some info but would ignore some of it. But it gives nice price ranges on some the the restaurants.

Here is the separate TripAdvisor link:

Lodging, have been told the HotelUmass is very good and on campus. It's a far walk to the stadium and would probably be best to drive. There is parking by Campus Center and connects below ground and above ground.

The Hampshire Hospitality Group has nice options and well regarded and out on route 9 about a mile from the stadium.

In nearby Northampton and highly recommend the Eastside Cafe. The seafood chowder is excellent and in fact everything I've tried has been really good but recommend reservations.
