Visiting Western Massachusetts, you will be enveloped by its beauty. From the tops of kaleidoscopic mountain forests to the beds of rolling rivers, it is a land full of natural beauty, gay and lesbian communities, and a bounty of cultural and physical activities.
Gays and Lesbians have long since migrated to this natural wonderland from Boston and New York City, establishing deep roots and eclectic communities. It’s no wonder the Boston Symphony makes its summer home in The Berkshires. Take a romantic drive along the Mohawk – America’s first scenic automobile route and one of the best places on earth to watch the fall foliage. Get lost in the museums and restaurants of Pioneer Valley, home to some of the nation’s most progressive universities. The college town of North Hampton has a strong lesbian community and a thriving arts scene, hip cafes and a funky, carefree spirit. But if an escape is all you crave, you won’t ever have to worry about “sticking out”.
Simply relax with your partner in any number of the region’s renowned bed and breakfasts – same sex couples are as common as the fresh air in Western Massachusetts.
A city of 30,000 people, Northampton is a unique and special blend of urban and rural; historic and contemporary; intellectual; artsy; athletic; and entrepreneurial energy.
The summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra sits amidst the rolling hits of the Berkshires. Whether you’re visiting this indoor-outdoor venue for the yearly Wine and food Classic, the Jazz Festival or to just enjoy a beautiful night with a soundtrack under the stars, Tanglewood is one of Massachusetts best kept secrets.
