Here's why Hotels.com put Stockbridge at the top of the list for must-visit small towns in Massachusetts:

Stockbridge is one of the most charming towns in the Berkshire Hills, featuring an array of green spaces and backcountry trails that make for a tranquil vacation. Whenever the sun is shining, a visit to the stunning house and garden of Naumkeag is a must, while the Berkshire Botanical Garden features an equally impressive collection of ponds and picnic spots.

Stockbridge is also highly regarded for its cultural history, with the renowned painter Norman Rockwell having lived and worked in the area. Visitors can find many of his most famous works on permanent display at the Norman Rockwell Museum. Elsewhere, the Chesterwood Museum and the Schantz Galleries Contemporary Glass will undoubtedly prove popular with art lovers.

We certainly can't disagree with any of that.
