If Western Massachusetts were a person, she’d be that natural beauty that doesn’t need any make up that you really want to hate, but can’t, because she’s so darn nice. Yep, Western Mass is plain gorgeous, from the green hills of the Berkshires to the stunning foliage along the Mohawk Trail, America’s first (and best!) scenic automobile route.  And it sure is nice, too, with the amazing collection of unique museums; the iconic Tanglewood music venue; epic music and hoops at Springfield’s Symphony Hall and the Basketball Hall of Fame, respectively; and some of the world’s most picturesque college towns in Northampton and Amherst. There’s even a hardcore music scene here. Aw, we could never hate you, Western Mass.
