1. What kinds of things do you like to do?

Nature? Culture? History?

9. Things I like

Stockbridge: Norman Rockwell Museum (the Four Freedoms!), Chesterwood, Stockbridge Bowl (pretty), Monument Mountain
Lenox: Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (although I doubt the grounds are open now - if they are it's lovely), The Mount (also probably closed)
Mt. Greylock: nice to hike, recreate a hike that Thoreau described in "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers". Emerson also hiked it e.g., The Unpardonable Sin, Ethan Brand
Arrowhead: Melville's home
North Adams: Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art
Northampton: Hang out

Feel free to PM with any questions. I'm a Bostonian (technically a Newtonian) but have spent a good bit of time in western MA.

We went to see Bob Weir yesterday at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield.

We really like Pittsfield as it reminds me of my home city - Newburgh..

We have a day planned for Mass MOCA..

We really like Pittsfield and spend and try to spend a day there checking out the local scene..
..

Thanks for the replies...

2. Take a walking tour

of the historic district in South Lee. Or you could visit the old marble quarries. There are probably some scenic routes in & around the Berkshires.

3. Your right in the Mohawk Trail Region....

Check out this website: http://www.mohawktrail.com/attractions.html

There's tons of stuff to see and do out there in Western MA. I love visiting Hancock Shaker Village: http://www.hancockshakervillage.org/

I also recommend the town of Shelburne Falls, MA: http://www.shelburnefalls.com/

Plus your right near the Vermont border and the Green Mountains offer some nice scenery.

I guess it depends on what you are looking to do/see plus if you have your own transportation and time.

Have fun. It's beautiful out in that part of the state.

4. how far is Lee from Old Deerfield?

That's also a beautiful place to visit. Northampton is interesting, too.

Shelburne Falls is a nice place for lunch. I understand that Bill Cosby lives nearby that town.

5. I'd guess it's about an hour/hour & a half away...

That's another place that everyone says is great to visit. I was thinking of going out to Deerfield this summer because others have said it's well worth it.

Here is a link: http://www.historic-deerfield.org/

7. I spent July 4 in Old Deerfield 'bout ten years ago

It was a wonderful place to spend that holiday. Interesting cultural and historic things going on, and so beautiful. It's very low-key.

I've always wanted to stay at the Inn there. On my bucket list when I win the lottery.

For those who like Yankee Candles, the factory and showroom are just down the road from Deerfield. I'm not a fan of scented candles, but many peeps are.
