From the first moments to the last meal in town, there’s something for all ages and families in the Northern Berkshires.
On your way into town, stretch your legs and enjoy inspiring views of the valley and mountains at Petersburg Pass or Wigwam Western Summit.
Inns, motels, and campgrounds are family friendly, so settle in and get ready for fun.
Looking for a good hike? To discover watery wonders, try the Cascades Trail. For a smoother (and drier) stroll, visit Hopkins Forest where wide trails allow kids to run ahead and still be in your sights.
Ease into the cultural experiences with a trip to the grounds of The Clark where you can hike woodland trails and walk amongst cows and art, such as the Ground/work exhibition open through autumn 2021.
While you’re there, check out the art inside the museum. The education department always has something going for kids and their families.
Good lunch spots include Pappa Charlie’s Deli and The Spring Street Market & Café in Williamstown. When you’re in North Adams, try The Capitol Restaurant on Main Street and Lickety Split at MASS MoCA.
MASS MoCA exhibits surprise and inform. Plus the 19th century mill complex provides big open spaces for easy movement and art-looking.
Kidspace at MASS MoCA exhibits world-class artwork in a kid-friendly context and offers related hands-on art projects for families.
Fall offers festivals, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, harvests, and apple picking!
Come with your family in any season. Take an adventure. Explore nature and art together. Create memories for a lifetime.
