My Area...........the Berkshires

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I have lived in the Berkshires in western Massachusetts for almost eight years now. It is a special place that I have known for the better part of my life. Today I will highlight some of the extraordinary activities that go on all summer and many all year. First I will talk about Tanglewood where I have worked since moving here. Tanglewood is the summer home of the Boston Symphony and Boston Pops Orchestras and welcomes and features some of the most famous popular artists as well as classical ones. The main venue is The Shed, featuring 5000 seats insides and lawn seating for another 25,000. There are other sites at Tanglewood and each is special. There are great programs for the best high school students from everywhere in the world, and another program for college and graduate students who will one day be contributing professional musicians. It is neat to be a part of this magical area.

There is a wonderful dance place called Jacobs Pillow. I have enjoyed watching groups there from all over the world. It is a study place for students as well. Dance in nature is very very unusual and special.

This is hard because once again I have lost pictures and copy. There are numerous museuems and gardens in the Berkshires as well. Many are both. Naumkeag, where I worked for a couple of years is the summer home of the Choate family, now belonging to the Trustees of Reservation.

 The Edith Wharton House has formal Gardens and tours all year long. There are musical events here in the summer which I enjoy attending too.

I could go on and on about the many sites and wonderful places in the Berkshires but life is short and I would rather experience them. If you are coming, let me know and I would be glad to help.

Sheila, thank you for persisting in getting your photos up; they are stunning. I like Edith Wharton (better than Jane Austin, actually) and if I'm every at Tanglewood again, I need to plan an overnight and visit the Edith Wharton house.

There is something about the Berkshires that seems so magical...even the name conjurs up something special. You've done a nice job showing it off.

SO happy you've landed in The Berkshires, Sheila. There's plenty to do and you know, the art and the gardens would be at the top of my list of stops when guests come to town!

Hi Sheila,
The Berkshires sounds like a wonderful place to live. You speak fondly of where you live as I do about where I live.  Each place in the world offers it's own special advantages, and we are each lucky to have found our special place.
