Travel Thursday – Exploring The Berkshires!

Our home away from home while in The Berkshires this summer.

Our home away from home while in The Berkshires this summer.

I once assumed The Berkshires were reserved for those that “summered” in New England. Um for the record, my family did not and we still don’t. In a nutshell, Massachusetts just didn’t seem like a desirable location for a destination wedding, honeymoon, romantic jaunt or even a quick girlfriend’s getaway like the Caribbean, Charleston or Las Vegas. Honestly, I think I was intimidated by the exclusive reputation of the area.

Fast forward to earlier this year when Black Bridal Bliss was invited to spend a weekend in The Berkshires. My perception of this historic western Massachusetts town has pleasantly evolved. Just under a two hour drive from midtown Manhattan — making it an ideal minimoon destination for NYC couples — it is an inviting escape from the hustle and bustle of city life (wild turkeys were spotted on the highway!) filled with lush greenery, rolling hills and friendly locals. Here are the Black Bridal Bliss top five reasons to visit The Berkshires: [Read more…]

A picturesque view of Buck Island, USVI.

The last stint of Triple B’s USVINice Tour was St. Croix. While I had a great time in St. Thomas and St. John, I enjoyed my visit to St. Croix most.
