Autumn conjures up thoughts of cozy, crisp, fire-side evenings and leafy, color-filled morning walks. Every city dweller yearns to leave the concrete jungle and truly enjoy this picturesque conception of the fall. Nestled directly between two metropolises, Boston and New York, lies a perfect escape where such visions are realized – The Berkshires. The Berkshires attracts people not only for its cultural and autumn-driven activities, but also for the luxury hotels and restaurants.
