This is my daughter's first year here and can I say I love this place! Although I was very skeptical about having her so far away from home (Miami, FL) I am so happy that she is here and loving it. Everyone here is so...More
The Williams College museum is a 100% joy. The Jacob's Pillow exhibition was stunning as was the exhibition of the college's collection that is loaned to students for the academic year. Kudos to the director/curator/exhibitions chair.
On the College tour circuit. Excellent tour guide and info session. The campus is very nice, with interesting mix of architecture, freshman quad area, and nice hills. Surrounded, of course, by Berkshire beauty. Art and Theater resources look great.
My husband and I walked some of the grounds of the campus and were very impressed . We went to the theater to see the musical Lempicka . We sat in the last row of the orchestra section and had a great view of the...More
This is one of the most beautiful college campuses anywhere; with its great blend of old and new, the purple valley is a dramatic backdrop from almost any building and any direction. Beyond the beauty of the campus is the fact that this is one...More
Williams continues to blight the once-peaceful and engagingly historic atmosphere of the town with cold, repellent and disharmonious structures while they tear down buildings of historic value and charm. The later word is, of course, anathema to the fool academic arbiters of taste and their...More
Williamstown in the fall is beautiful and Williams College is right in the middle of great scenic vistas which include Vermont only a 10 minute drive north on Rt 7. The college itself has some historic buildings, plenty of walking opportunities,great dining,and of course the...More
List: activities attractions in Hancock & Berkshires area (2 Replies)
We are returning to Hancock in mid October. We have toured Norman Rockwell museum & Stockbridge, zip lined and mountain coaster at Berkshire East in Charlemont, toured Williamstown and Williams College, drove Mt. Greylock trail, Lee Outlet, Shaker Village and hiked a trail to a waterfall. We would like some suggestions of hiking trails - waterfalls are awesome or scenic drives or any other suggestions are appreciated.

Tannery Falls in the Savoy Mountain State Park is worth a visit. You can hike up to there (a few miles) from the State Park road or drive to the parking lot from Black Brook Road (off route 2) which reopened after storm damage. There are several easy trails in Savoy Mountain State Park you can hike, too. Have you visited Natural Bridge State Park in North Adams? Not much hiking, but interesting for an hour visit. There's an easy hike 'Cascade Trail' along the Notch Brook on the west side of...More

Will be attending Williams College for an event in early Feb. Would like to be near campus. Looking for something quiet but won't be spending a lot of time in the room. Will be either going with my husband or solo.

There are many nice motels ( more like inns) on Rt 7 just south of town Check on Trip Advisor for there current ratings .There is a hotel right in town,the name is evading me, that will probably be more expensive . There are also many restaurants to choose from. Make sure you leave time for the Clark Museum
Albany to Williamstown, MA- best route (7 Replies)
I'm going to be driving to Williams College this weekend from Albany. Google maps seems to like Rt 7 . Can anyone tell me if Route 2 or Route 43 are equally efficient and good ways to go as well? Thanks.

Google Maps is showing me that 2 is preferred, but all 3 routes take within a minute or two of each other. So you might want to chose based on what you'll see en route, including meal options, if that works out with your timing.
