It houses the Colonial Theatre which was named by Hillary Clinton as a National Historic Treasure in 1998 and has been described as “one of the finest theatres in the world”.

Another fun activity for the adventurous winter spirit is a trip to the Bousquet Ski Area, a collection of slopes for skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Pittsfield State Forest is another great outdoor destination, perhaps for warmer weather, where one can take a walk past streams, waterfalls, lush vegetation, and enjoy stunning views from the top of Berry Mountain.
Pittsfield is also the location of Arrowhead: The Herman Melville House where guests can take tours of the house and grounds of the famous Moby Dick author’s home.
The Herbert Arboretum is an interesting spot, as people can enjoy a fine collection of plant life while also enjoying a view of Lake Onota. Lake Onota is a great place to stop because it has a fishing pier and a boat ramp, plus a lot of water activities, including rowing, sailing and swimming.
For a lunch or dinner, Mission Bar and Tapas is a great destination. Up near the mountain is Brook Farm Inn, which has some tasty dishes and a nice atmosphere.
The temperatures from June to September are definitely the most enjoyable, but as we mentioned there is some nearby winter activities so those wanting a taste of powder should come through in the winter.
