The Berkshires

Overview

Few places can combine culture with beautiful countryside as well as the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

Ideally located just over 2 hours from both Boston and New York City, the area is a mecca of museums, historic sites, music, dance and art venues. In addition there are outstanding opportunities for golfing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and other watersports. Wintersports include alpine and cross country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. All of these activities take place amid spectacularly scenic rural hills, dotted with mountain streams and lakes.

As a crossroads of culture, the Berkshires attracts chefs and restaurateurs who are artists in their own right. Dining is wonderfully varied and often surpasses the highest expectations. There is also an incredible range of retail establishments. From the Vermont state line south to the Connecticut border, you’ll find an unbelievable array of quaint and cutting edge Berkshires shops — from antiques dealers to outlets to myriad specialty shops.
