Massachusetts is a fantastic vacation destination for folks traveling from all over the world, but also for residents who opt for a road trip in their own home state. While Massachusetts is certainly most known for the capital city of Boston, and the world-famous beaches and islands of Cape Cod, there is a hidden gem many folks don't know about all the way on the opposite end of the state. The Berkshires of Massachusetts.

The Berkshires are known throughout the world as a top New England travel destination. Visitors from all over travel to our tiny corner of the world year-round to enjoy its natural beauty, cultural hubs, and culinary scene.

Berkshire County has been featured as a travel destination in notable publications like Vogue, Travel & Leisure, Forbes Travel,  Food & Wine, Smithsonian, and several times by the international travel authority, Condé Nast.

If you're not familiar, Condé Nast is a global media company that features many high-end publications but is most well known for its own travel periodical Condé Nast Traveller, which gives recommendations for worldwide luxury travel.

Its latest feature on The Berkshires is basically a love letter to the part of the state we call home, which mentions The Mount, Prairie Whale, The Inn at Kenmore Hall, Cantina 229, and of course Tanglewood. The article titled "Why The Berkshires, Massachusetts, Should Be Your Next U.S. Destination" encourages its readers to come and enjoy everything we have to offer.
