My favorite weekend getaway is not the Hamptons, or Fire Island, or The Jersey Shore—though I love visiting 2 out of 3 of those, being a native Long Islander). It’s the Berkshires.

I went away this past weekend there with a couple of girl friends and had a blast reminiscing about our summers spent there as kids. These pictures were from a trip a couple of weeks ago to the area (I finally found them, after being lost for a while), but every time I go there it’s a pretty laid back vibe. It used to be a hippie town, but in recent years has gotten a bit more posh. I even spotted Kevin Bacon at a sushi restaurant there a few years ago.

It was bizarre to return this summer to see the usual patchouli-filled stores being replaced by shops you may find in NYC, but nonetheless, it was nice to be surrounded by such an artsy community. There’s nothing like an inspiring getaway.
