Celebrity sightings in The Berkshires are not uncommon and recently Mark Wahlberg's name has been poppin' up.

Slater and Marjo had a chance to speak with Katie Smegal, owner of Bianco's Limousine and Livery Service, a service that Mr. Wahlberg has used recently.

"We are the car service that he, (Walhberg), uses when he or his family comes to town. We have established a very good relationship with them, and yes he does frequent the area", Smegal said. "Here's a funny anecdote, I was only supposed to transport his luggage and wound up actually driving he and his family to their destination. I've never sweat so much in a six-minute car ride."

So what can you tell us about his interest in the area?

"I can't say anything when I know that he's coming in, I can't post anything on social media until after he is already long gone. The only thing I can confirm is that he does not have a house here in The Berkshires, contrary to circulating posts on social media.", said Smegal. "I went to the place that he was having lunch at yesterday, The Proprietor's Lodge in Pittsfield, just to make sure he was happy with his livery service."

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
