An abundance of art, food, and nature make the Berkshires an idyllic (and interesting) country escape, just a few hours north of New York.

That's how the article in the March 2019 edition of Vogue, featuring The Berkshires begins. While the area we're lucky enough to call often garners attention of cultural and outdoor enthusiasts, we're not just talking about any write up here, we're taking about VOGUE people.

The editorial piece was written after an early winter visit and chronicles the amazing cultural, environmental and artistic beauty of the area, sharing with readers what locals already know, that it's like no other place on earth.  Given it's proximity to New York City, the iconic fashion and lifestyle magazine touts The Berkshires as a quieter alternative to upstate New York for a country getaway.

The article boasts about the abundance of outdoor activity year round with everything from hiking to skiing, highlights summer outdoor performance venues and festivals and calls our corner of the state a hub for culture, food and the arts.

The periodical features photos of the new hotel Tourists in North Adams, the recently opened Inn at Kenmore Hall in Richmond as well as shots from The Mount, Blantyre, MASS MoCA and the Clark Art Institute.  The article goes on to make recommendations of places to stay, things to see and of course things to eat. They implore readers to grab a bite at Cantina 229, Prairie Whale, Berkshire Mountain Bakery, and Nudel among others.

If you sometimes forget what an unique and spectacular area we live in, don't worry VOGUE will remind you.
