Foliage in the Berkshires

A road cuts through the Berkshires at the height of foliage season.

The Berkshires are highlands in western Massachusetts formed by the southern stretch of the Green Mountains. The Green Mountains, in turn, make up the northeastern portion of the Appalachian mountain range.

Similar to Newport, RI, Bar Harbor, ME and other “Gilded Age” summer colonies, The Berkshires attracted the construction of opulent mansions by the industrial and financial elite of the time. The more than 70 estates built during the Gilded Age are called Berkshire Cottages.

Today, the Berkshires is a popular tourist destination, known for its natural beauty as well as a center for the visual and performing arts.
