With much excitement, a couple of weeks ago we launched our destination series, “1, 2, 3,” which features 1️⃣ place to stay, 2️⃣ places to eat, and 3️⃣ places to visit in a specific locale. This week, editor @LaurenVDana shares her guide to The Berkshires👇
Miraval Berkshires (@miravalresorts): The wellness resort chain’s newest property (its first-ever east coast location!) is not to be missed. Featuring incredible architecture, luxe accommodations, farm-to-fork cuisine, and awe-inspiring design elements, this adults-only all-inclusive makes the ideal place to stay in The Berkshires.
Cafe Boulud at Blantyre (@cafebouludny): Acclaimed Chef Daniel Boulud teamed up with Blantyre Resort to bring Cafe Boulud to the Berkshires. Expect stunning surroundings, hospitable staff, edible works of art, and eclectic cocktails. Personal favorites include The Frenchie Burger, pomme frites, and house-made gnocchi. The pop-up is available through February 2021.
Baba Louie’s (@babalouiespizza): This upscale Italian eatery is located in the heart of downtown Great Barrington (there’s also a location in Hudson, NY). Baba Louie’s is best known for its incredible selection of pizzas and toppings, which include roasted potatoes, wild spinach, and smoked gouda — among dozens more. An array of fresh salads and daily pasta specials are also available.
The Berkshire Botanical Gardens (@berkshirebotanicalgarden): Don’t forget your camera! The 24-acre oasis is home to over 3,000 species of flowers and, plants flanked by stunning scenery. The gardens are also home to several tranquil walking trails.
Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCa) (@massmoca): Art enthusiasts will appreciate a visit to this acclaimed museum, which is one of the country’s largest contemporary visual art and performing arts venues. With over 250,000 square feet of gallery space, Mass MoCa offers something for everyone.
Mount Greylock: Outdoor lovers and adrenaline junkies should pay a visit to Mount Greylock State Reservation — which reaches a towering 3,491 feet (making it the highest point in Massachusetts). The view at the top is amazing!
