IntroductionHolyoke, Massachusetts, 8 mi/13 km north of Springfield, is an example of an early planned mill city. Today it's a year-round recreation center, with fishing, ice skating, cross-country skiing, rock climbing and snowshoeing at Mount Tom State Reservation. At Holyoke Heritage State Park, tours of mills and mill workers' houses document the days of early industry. The park's Children's Museum is a great place for the kids to shake out their sillies after hours in the car. They can tour a pint-sized town, with grocery store and doctor's office just their size, or gaze into the infinity mirror, a three-sided chamber lined with reflective glass.
