Hi- I was just wondering what the drive from Boston to Amherst is like. I know it's about 90 - 100 miles, but what is the road like? Is it a two lane winding road, or more of a four lane interstate? What is the speed limit? What's the fastest that you make it if you really push it?

    So that would indicate that you can't go any faster than about 45 mph? It must be a two lane winding road?

    It's about 2 hours, although that could be more or less depending on traffic. 1.5 hours is doable if you push it and traffic cooperates. Absolute worst case is 4 hours, which happened to me once when 90 was backed up for literally the entire length of the state. The simplest route from Boston is west on I-90, then north on I-91, then east on route 9. Route 9 is stop and go, but the interstates you can take as fast as you would expect.
