Great Barrington, often labeled one of the best small towns in America, and the surrounding Southern Berkshire towns are filled with opportunities for entertainment, rejuvenation and relaxation, and fun. If you’re staying for a weekend or longer, you can enjoy all the Berkshires has to offer: hike, bike, and kayak; tour historic homes, like The Mount and Naumkeag; visit breweries, wineries, and the Berkshire Mountain Distillery; enjoy other events and performances (we recommend you check the Berkshire Edge Calendar).
Here are a few ideas to guide you when planning your trip.
