Welcome to The Berkshires
The Berkshires, located in the western part of Massachusetts, bordering Eastern New York state, is the name given to Berkshire County Massachusetts. It is a region full of diverse, quintessential New England towns and hamlets, and home to an impressive collection of cultural and historic sites. Music, art and theater abound in the region, such as Tanglewood, the Boston Symphony's summer home, MASS MoCA, the country's largest contemporary art center, the Norman Rockwell Museum, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and the Williamstown Theatre Festival to name a few. Recreational opportunities also abound, including snowshoeing, snowboarding, skiing, rafting, kayaking, fishing and golf. The Berkshires are an easy drive, just two and a half hours from both Boston and New York.
"Here in New England, the character is strong and unshakable." — Norman Rockwell
