Since no one has answered you, I will just say that having lived most of my life in WMass, I always heard that Feeding Hills was nice. I had never been in Agawam though. Lately I've been going there to visit a relative in a nursing home and there is at least one nice area near where she is. The zip is 01030 which comes out as Feeding Hills.

There's not much there except a library and a little pub with excellent food. I wouldn't mind living there. As for the rest of the town, I don't know much about it. It's not as beautiful as Southwick. It's more residential than rural.

I’m originally from Agawam, (Feeding Hills area), and I would say any of the subdivisions along and off of River Road are nice with lots of sidewalks and a bike path along the river, and Borgatti Park. Six Flags is within walking distance if you are on the southern end.
There’s also nice neighborhoods off of North Street which are near Robinson State Park.

The only thing I'd keep in mind is that CT might put tolls on I-91. If that happens the traffic might reroute to RT 5. So anyone living in mass and going to work in CT is going to switch to the agawam/west springfield side with rt 5 vs 91. Then add in the big e and that might get complicated. Otherwise they end up at the split at forest park...which might create more traffic with bright nights exit there as well.

Long story short anything by rt 5 is going to have more traffic once they put the tolls in but other than that it's fine.

We get diverted to secondary roads west of BDL through Agawam occasionally on peak Friday afternoon ski weekends and leaf peeper month when 91 is a parking lot. Nobody is going to do that as their daily commute.
