In the fall, guests can experience crisp air and colorful foliage that’s perfect for leaf-peeping. Or, if you’re visiting in the summertime, spend the day at Pittsfield State Forest where you’ll see abundant wildlife, sprawling vistas, and winding hiking trails that are just waiting to be explored. To see the beauty of the Berkshires from a bird’s-eye view, take a hot air balloon ride with Worthington Ballooning for a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll never forget!
