Mt. Greylock

Drive to the summit of Mt. Greylock, the highest peak in Massachusetts. Parking at the summit is only a few bucks. Views of 3 states on a clear day. You can even enjoy dinner and jazz on the summit (Sundays only in the summer). Pick up a trail map at the Visitor's Center 2 miles away.

Ramblewild Adventure Park

Book ahead for Ramblewild Adventure Park, a high-ropes course in the trees, located less than 2 mis away. It is expensive, but well worth it. There are various levels of difficulty.

A few hiking options:

Pick up a trail map before you go. You can purchase them at Arcadian Shop in Lenox, or Berkshire Outfitters in Adams. The Mount Greylock Visitor's Center in Lanesborough has trail maps of the mountain. Mount Greylock has many options, including the Appalachian Trail. My all time favorite is Stony Ledge trail from Williamstown. It doesn't go to the summit, but the Ledge overlooks a spectacular ravine. For something much flatter, try Field Farm on Sloan Rd., Williamstown. Or drive to Great Barrington and hike Monument Mountain. This a very popular hike and has excellent views from the summit.

Music scene

There are countless venues for live music. MassMOCA in N. Adams has regular year-round shows at 3 separate venues on campus. The Bascom Lodge on the summit of Mt. Greylock has jazz bands outside on Sunday evenings in the summer. The Stationary Factory in Dalton has regular bands. Of course there's Tanglewood in Lenox for popular artists and classical music. And there are dozens of small bars/restaurants with local talent musicians.
