Know Before You Go Travel Update

Our Know Before You Go blog post is a go-to source for travel tips, planning suggestions, and pandemic restrictions. We want to ensure that anyone planning to visit the Berkshires has a positive experience, both in preparing for their visit and during their stay. Information is key, so share this link to help inform visitors before they arrive in the Berkshires. It’s also an opportunity to inspire travel dreaming – share on social media to encourage your followers to put your business and the Berkshires on their destination wish list. They can always book now and travel later.

Holidays in the Berkshires

Perfect for anyone already visiting the Berkshires or those lucky enough to call this region home, our Holidays in the Berkshires page boasts a long and festive list of indoor, outdoor, and virtual offerings. Find ongoing activities like Winterlights at Naumkeag, NightWood at The Mount and the Winter Wonderland Walkway at the Stockbridge Library, along with daily onsite fun such as Holiday Lights at Arrowhead (tomorrow Dec. 16th!) and Santa’s Mail Express hosted by Berkshire Scenic Railway. If you want to avoid being around others, then scroll down for virtual events like Ventfort Hall’s on-demand streaming of a new version of A Christmas Carol and Rockin’ Little Christmas with Lucinda Williams presented by Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center. Holiday dining options are also listed.

COVID-19 Information and Resources

We’re all COVID fatigued, so having an all inclusive resource just a click away is crucial to maintaining sanity. Check our online info and resources page for regularly updated guidance from state and federal agencies, small business resources, unemployment assistance, and financial aid such as grants and funds. You’ll also find a comprehensive list of restaurants offering takeout, delivery, curbside service, and indoor dining options, as well as some fun activities for all members of the family. Share this with your members, employees, subscribers, and followers. Use the hashtag #maskupMA to remind them to be safe.
