They have awesome artists scheduled for shows year round. The people are always friendly and the shops are unique. It is easy to park and walk. Don't miss the book stores that feature local writers.

This is a very charming village with lovely shops and a 25 store market place under one roof. Not many motels so don't go during major holidays or college graduations. Driving through the Berkshires is always a treat.

It is the perfect place to spend...More

Far to many left wing loons here. Does make for a very clean, and low crime rate city though. If you can make it past the panhandlers, who NEVER work, the main street offers a lot to see. Many nice places to eat, and be...More
