Orange, Massachusetts is the easternmost town in Franklin County with easy access to both eastern and western Massachusetts. MA Route 2 runs through Orange, which can take you to Boston in just an hour and a half and Greenfield in only 30 minutes. Orange also has its own municipal airport, which is open to the public and also serves as a flight training center and parachuting center.
Most of the year, Orange is a fairly quiet town where residents and visitors can enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Lake Mattawa is a popular spot for swimming, boating, and fishing. The lake is stocked with trout and salmon for fishing and the waters are so clear, you can see 15 feet down. There is also a small, unsupervised beach from which to sunbathe and go swimming. A boat ramp gives access to the lake for boaters.
A few times during the year, Orange becomes a bustling, lively place. One particular instance is during the North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival, also known as “the festival that stinks.” This event is a celebration of the “beauty and bounty” of the North Quabbin.
