The west of Massachusetts is a magnificent area, from the lush green hills of the Berkshires to the dazzling fall foliage along the Mohawk Trail, the first tourist route in the United States. This region has some of the top arts attractions in the USA; iconic Tanglewood and its summer music scene; art collections from MASS MoCA to the Clark Institute, not forgetting the Hancock Shaker Village, the Basketball Hall of Fame and some of the most picturesque universities worldwide including Northampton and Amherst.
