Berkshire County is known as America's Premier Cultural Resort and for good reason. When you think about all of the theater, live music, and museum options that are available in the Berkshires, it's not surprising that people want to travel a great distance to visit our area. When you combine our art culture with our endless outdoor options and natural beauty, it's a no-brainer that folks would want to not only visit here but live in Berkshire County as well, we have something for everyone.

Berkshire County also has the advantage of being able to offer all four seasons pretty evenly. Again, something for everyone. Sometimes we joke about the Berkshire weather being fickle. I had a guest on-air with me a couple of weeks ago who mentioned that Berkshire County seems like the only county where you can experience all four seasons in one day. That's pretty funny but as residents of the Berkshires know, the guest's joke can be true at times.
