Let's start our tour of the Berkshire mountains of western Massachusetts.

Stockbridge, Massachusetts
Stockbridge is a small town located in a quiet valley in the hills of Berkshire. Its streets and sun-dappled classical architecture made emblematic of the quaint New England town. It is fitting that one of the chroniclers of the arts in Stockbridge was Norman Rockwell, whose portrayal of romantic town life evokes a simpler time, no rush and good neighborliness.

The small center looks like a Rockwell painting come to life. With small, locally owned shops, tidy, spacious streets and sidewalks, children's bicycles, beautiful churches, and many examples of well-maintained and diversified the New England, architecture, Stockbridge is a welcome respite from the frantic pace of the 21st century in America.

The Stockbridge Berkshire hills around offer a wide variety of four season activities. There are more than 90,000 acres of land for recreation, more than 90 lakes and ponds, parks, golf courses and ski slopes. Stockbridge cultures including the famous Tanglewood Music Festival and the Berkshire Theater Festival.

While home prices in the region are relatively high, there are still some bargains available from time to time. Visit the State of Massachusetts 2ndhome Http: / / www.2ndhome.net/massachusetts-vacation-homes page.

The city of Charlotte sits on a series of hills and ridges overlooking Lake Champlain about ten miles south of the bustling city of Burlington. Vermont Magazine said: "... It is a city dominated by rural landscapes, farmland, hills and orchards, is also - quietly, without a doubt - part of Vermont from the Gold Coast. "

Charlotte is a city with many attractions. Burlington is pretty close to access the department stores, restaurants and nightlife, but it is a bucolic, pastoral, with a sense of community spirit, manifested through a commitment to excellent schools, a new local council and a large collection of places, the Brick Store old. Residents bridge the spectrum between several generations of farmers, artists, writers and professionals of all kinds.
