We are certainly lucky to live in Berkshire County. In Massachusetts we are known for our beautiful landscapes, destination getaways, leaf peeping locations (tourists flock here in the fall months just to experience the foliage we have to offer) and let's not forget our dedication to our home teams including the Pats, Sox and Celtics.
