Weekend Getaway Guide: Where To Go & What To Do In The Berkshires

Living in New York City is awesome but, in the winter especially, it can be tough. Slushy sidewalks, jacked up Uber rates and tiny apartments can make even the happiest New Yorkers go stir crazy. But if you don’t have the time or the budget to jet off to the Caribbean, there are plenty of options to unwind much closer to home. We recently checked out the Berkshires: the bucolic mountain region in western Massachusetts that’s easily reachable by car or train. Don’t worry, just because you’re spending a weekend away from the pulse of the city doesn't mean you need to stay in a Victorian mansion filled with spiderwebs, or join the senior citizens in a doily filled diner. Click through for the coolest places to stay, eat, and do for the discerning New Yorker (read: you) who’s ready to unwind.
