Nature & Recreation
The Berkshires is a paradise for the athletically inclined and people who simply like to take in the fresh air. The hiking is superb, golf courses abound, and kayaking or canoeing can be done on a lake or in a stream. Other tempting activities include horseback riding, adventure courses, whitewater rafting, swimming, camping, skiing either downhill or cross-country, snowshoeing, and a myriad of other choices.
