This was an extremely unwelcoming town that was difficult to navigate and had a disgusting hotel.

The hotel we stayed at was filthy, and when we called to ask for more pillows, they said they didn't have any.

I don't understand how Chicopee could be 10th most dangerous city in Ma. I moved into Chicopee 4 years ago and have never had an issue with anyone or my property. Its rare to see cops or any emergency in action. Very quiet neighborhoods. People are polite and courteous. The schools have helped my kids grades go up dramatically since we moved here. As for things to do, not much, since its a little town with just stores for shopping. Overall I love this place.

Chicopee Annual fair, not sure what's it called but it's a little fair with food and such. Celebrating Chicopee. There are also events for the holidays such as the Christmas Tree lighting. Plenty of parks and the Chicopee recreational office offers classes for adults and children such as swimming lessons, art classes, cpr training and more.
