Nestled on the western edge of Massachusetts amongst the Appalachian mountains, you’ll find Berkshire County. Surrounded on all sides by New York, Vermont, and Connecticut, The Berkshires, as they’re more commonly known, are a relaxing epicenter to the Northeast where you can slow down and enjoy life. The towns are gorgeous, the culture is rich, and the scenery is breathtaking.
The Berkshires are a major tourist destination but there’s no reason you can’t consider calling it home as well. There’s no shortage of family fun to be had here, from the over 100 cultural attractions to the various outdoor activities to the many festivals happening all year long. Cities like Pittsfield and North Adams, as well as small towns such as Adams and Williamstown, exude the kind of New England charm you thought only existed in movies.
