Tanglewood: The summer home of Boston Symphony. Any trip to the Berkshires should include a concert at Tanglewood. Many famous conductors and artists perform there and James Taylor is always there for one of the concerts. Great experience!

Forgot to say that Naumkeag is in Stockbridge, and The Mount is in Lenox, easy driving from one to the other.
