Highly recommended
In the far west of Massachusetts, the Berkshires are separated from the state of New York by the Taconic Range. The rolling highland countryside enjoys a thriving tourist trade where small 19C mill towns, coexist with residential areas. During the summer, cooled by a gentle breeze, the small towns host cultural events; fall brings a superb pallet of red and brown colors while the winter is cloaked in a heavy mantle of snow, ideal for skiing.
