Historic Lenox is in the heart of the Berkshires, America's premier cultural resort. In summer, the green hills come alive with the sound of music -- Lenox is the locale of Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony -- as well as theater (including Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theatre Festival, Williamstown Theatre Festival, Barrington Stage Company, and The Colonial Theater), dance (Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival) and film festivals. Historic homes -- such Edith Wharton's The Mount -- offer extraordinary experiences of the past. The Berkshires also abound in recreational treasures, from skiing and snowshoeing to water sports and year-round hiking. In the fall, visitors from all over the world flock to the Berkshires to enjoy the fall foliage. For the arts, recreation, nature, and cuisine, visit the Berkshires any time of year!
