Berkshire County is getting more recognition from the national media.

In the  "14 Best Places to Travel in the US" list put together by Forbes, Northern Berkshire County received some accolades. Forbes travel writer Christina Pérez gave her support to North Adams and Williamstown as a place travelers should check out in 2019.

Here's what she had to say about the area:

Nature lovers and culture fiends have long had plenty of reasons to visit this little corner of the Berkshires: the stunning beauty of the Hoosic Mountain range, the sweeping views from the top of Mount Graylock and the fantastic arts programs of MassMoca and nearby Williams College. But until very recently, there have been surprisingly few lodging options to match the area's creative vibe. That's all changed with the opening of Tourists, a design-minded boutique motel offering 48 super chic rooms and a minimalist-rustic aesthetic. And with James Beard Award-winning chef Cortney Burns set to open a locavore restaurant on the premises in 2019, the hotel — and the area in general — is sure to secure a new status as a must-visit foodie destination, too.

The annual list is put together by a variety of travel experts who have different tastes in food, culture, nature and up-and-coming potential. Other cites and towns that made the list include Fort Lauderdale, Santa Fe, Nashville, and Fort Collins in Colorado.
