I have lived in the Berkshires for over 10 years hiking the trails, teaching skiing at the area ski resorts, and sailing on the lakes and with Shakespeare, Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow and fine restaurants to choose from, this is a place where no one can be bored. A lovely place to visit, live, and return again and again. I came here from Southern Connecticut, though I have lived abroad and in the West Coast as well and I have to say this is one of the most beautiful places I have lived.
Since living here I have taught skiing at Jiminy, started a hiking group with 270+ members, participated in fundraising activities for the Library, and other groups, and raced small sailboats on Pontoosuc Lake in the summers. The culture with Shakespeare, Tanglewood, and Jacobs Pillow mixed with amazing museums and a landscape that is diverse and beautiful year-round are the many attractions to the Berkshires.
