Bora Bora. Cancun. St. Moritz. Lenox.
The Berkshire town that’s home to Tanglewood and several other cultural attractions has been named to a list of the 26 most extravagant vacation destinations around the world by the travel company, Expedia.
“If performing arts tickle your fancy, make Lenox a priority next time you indulge. Home to Tanglewood, the summer residence of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the village offers big city talent in intimate settings. The venue hosts the Festival of Contemporary Music, and James Taylor and John Williams have been known to drop in. Live music is a way of life, but Shakespeare & Company plays its part in community culture, featuring productions throughout the season. The Blantyre is a pitch-perfect place to stay, as it blends old-world charm with modern amenities. For further glimpses into the rose-colored past, visit Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum, and The Mount, where Edith Wharton expressed her peerless style and sense of beauty. For a meal worthy of a sonnet, go to Alta Restaurant & Wine Bar, where pan seared scallops in warm bacon vinaigrette will have you singing beautiful music.”
