A little town in Western Mass with as many college students as "townies". Amherst is a suburb of the University of Massachusetts main campus, because there is nothing else around! Residents still manage to have that holier-than-thou attiude, despite the fact that their financial existence relies on the University.
No. It's not Am-HERST. It's pronounced Am-ERST. No 'H'.
