Great Barrington, Massachusetts

Railroad Street. Image: Laurie Beth Gustafson/Southern Berkshire Chamber of Commerce

The funky, charming hub of southern Berkshire County, Great Barrington blends small-town friendliness and Brooklyn trendiness. Thanks to summer and ski-season visitors, the town offers many more amenities than its year-round population would otherwise support. To paraphrase local musician Arlo Guthrie, “you can get anything you want’’ — well, almost — in Great Barrington: 50-plus restaurants, a performing arts center, college, movie theater, hospital, and a ski resort.
