Arts and Culture Weekend Getaway in the Berkshire Mountains
Certainly, summer is when the Berkshires really shines — when the notes of the Boston Symphony Opera float out of Tanglewood, Jacobs Pillow is alive with dance, and the Williamstown Theater Festival and other stage companies lift their curtains. If you can get tickets, the Fourth of July at the Tanglewood shed (usually with James Taylor) is an experience to behold. For a full calendar of events, visit Berkshires.org
Many museums and several acclaimed companies — including the highly regarded Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center — stay open year round, making the money-saving shoulder seasons (particularly the area's lovely autumn months) excellent times to visit.
Wintertime is typically for those looking for spa experiences, or cross-country and downhill skiing. Christmas in Stockbridge—when the town recreates in perfect detail a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting—is a quaint tradition that's worth a visit.
