Solo Trip Ideas

While traveling with family and friends can be fun, going solo has it perks. You get to choose everything – where to stay, when to eat, what to do on your schedule. And in the northern Berkshires, there’s a lot to choose from!

Treat Yourself

Explore Indoors

  • Experience movie magic at Images Cinema, our local and friendly independent theater.
  • Wander through vast 19th century gallery rooms filled with contemporary art at MASS MoCA.
  • The Clark invites quiet contemplation of historic works of art as well as new experiments.

Get Outdoors

  • Lounge outdoors near the reflecting pools at The Clark and stroll the pastoral grounds. Enjoy bird songs, sunsets, and cows.
  • Take a short shady hike to the waterfalls at The Cascades in North Adams.
  • Soak up the sun, read a book, or people-watch at the Sand Springs Pool in Williamstown.
  • If you’d like to join a guided hike or bird walk, see what Williamstown Rural Lands has planned.


  • Enjoy lunch at Café 7 at The Clark (on a warm day, take your lunch outside on the terrace or under a tree)
  • For an evening meal, visit The Barn Kitchen & Bar for familiar New England classics and seasonally inspired locally sourced cuisine. Find easy seating at the bar or on the patio.
  • Mezze Bistro + Bar features the vast flavors of the Mediterranean made within the Berkshires’ different seasons. Enjoy their beautiful dining room and bar or outside deck.


Enjoy your solo trip to the northern Berkshires. We look forward to welcoming you!
