Tucked into the idyllic Berkshires, the highlands of western Massachusetts, Tanglewood is one of the country’s premier venues for music and the performing arts. The summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Tanglewood and its surrounding area is simply a beautiful place to spend a few days while soaking in the abundant offerings of art, music and natural beauty.
Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
Also in the Berkshires, the Jacob’s Pillow was originally a farm that served as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Its 163 acres of grounds now include three stages, a professional school, restaurants, gardens, trails and woodlands. The festival, which lasts all summer, features dance in all its forms from all over the world.
