My wife and I moved to the area with our 2 month old baby after living most of our lives in Colorado and we could not be happier. The Southern Berkshires is the perfect place to live. We are surrounded by beautiful nature and have all of the amenities we need. There are green mountains and perfect rivers and lakes everywhere here, we never run out of free things to do outside year round. We are also in the middle of an amazing arts and culture scene. The food and restaurants are amazing too, catering to the weekenders from New York and Boston. Its small town living with big city amenities and culture, everything you could want or need is here. Great schools, libraries, parks and playgrounds for the kids. It really is a special place with four true and beautiful seasons. And the people here are all so nice! There is no better place to live for a young family. We love it here!!!
