Lenox of Berkshire County

A small, dearest town. I simply love this place. Few square miles but very well-organized. It’s not all about architecture, as we can see in Italy or Europe, Lenox has a particular aroma. Almost each every house has something going on… a store, a library, a restaurant, a coffee shop, an inn or an art gallery. Not to mention Tanglewood, which every single summer is the host of a million tourists, or Shakespeare Company.

What happens at Tanglewood? You simply take your blanket or the outdoor chairs, the picnic basket, the wine glasses and for a couple of hours, you can really enjoy a quality time under the stars accompanied by the Boston Symphony Orchestra by itself or with one of its guests. Believe me, that feeling cannot be compared with the atmosphere of a regular concert (be it Depeche Mode or Madonna) and you don’t have to be a fan of Boston Orchestra, to be amazed and to enjoy classical, popular and jazz performance.

Shakespeare & Company offers a fun-filled year-round schedule with fresh, exciting takes on Shakespeare, trilling contemporary plays and new works. King Lear, The Tempest, etc, plus special events, beautiful meadows and picnic area.
Jack’s Pillow Dance Festival is not far from Lenox. You can learn some steps from an african dance, tango or other style. You can watch a great performance, you can visit some art’s galleries, exercise along with kids or simply can make the tour of the historic ground.

In fact, all the area of Berkshire has a lot to offer, be it spring, summer or winter. Autumn is Berkshire, as in all New London is unique. This could be a new topic for my pictures of fall.

      • I like it a lot. The little shops on the street reminded me of a place in Germany: St. Goar. Its on the Rhine (river), one street place, old train station (Taviani (the film director) style..and obviously the inevitable castle. Its near Loreley, actually. So, in addition, you brought back fine memories for me too ; ) Best wishes! w.

  1. Looks like a quaint little town full of charm and tranquility…I also often wader out looking for such pristine little hamlets in Europe and I have never been disappointed…
    All the photographs are tastefully taken and they all tell a story, or I should say, a very happy story…A very nice post indeed!!!!!

  2. Oh my gosh Dana, have been there a zillion times; thanks for the memory. Used to have a weekend home in Goshen CT, now we come up for a week or two each year in the summer. One of my favorite ever romantic dates with my husband was on the lawn for 4th of July one year. Fun post!
