Conde Nast Traveller traveler the berkshires destination tanglewood

Posted on January 23rd, 2021 by Canna Provisions


More and more people are hearing about live in the Berkshires and wonder “is it just hype?”. Well as the magazine for the people that love to travel and live the good life magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, will tell you – it indeed lives up to the hype. And then some.

From Conde Nast Traveller recent huge feature (with amazing photos) titled “Why The Berkshires, Massachusetts Should Be Your Next US Destination:”

Long sought out by eminent writers and jaded New Yorkers as a rustic base, the Berkshires have evolved into a vibrant nexus of chefs and artists reweaving the traditional fabric.

We would add that the Berkshires is also home to the best legal cannabis in Massachusetts. Canna Provisions Lee – with the biggest selection of carefully curated craft cannabis in the Commonwealth is situated at the Gateway to the Berkshires, about 300 yards off the Mass Pike/I-90 when coming in from New York, or from points east like the Pioneer Valley, Springfield, Worcester, and Boston.

More from the Conde Nast Traveller piece bestowing love and instruction to travel safely to the Berkshires during COVID or any time:

The Berkshires are equidistant from both New York and Boston. But rather than existing in the thrall of these cities, this is first and foremost a county in Massachusetts, spanning the state’s entire western edge, from the post-industrial town of North Adams to the rolling farmlands in the south. One of the first geographic difficulties – or blessings – I discovered upon moving here is precisely how disconnected it is from New York City. It takes actual work, the negotiation of a few knotty highways, and several moments of questioning the integrity of your GPS and sanity, to reach this place. Psychologically, that separation keeps it an animal of New England rather than a far-flung bedroom community of the Big Apple. And it is New England, in all of its romantic, Norman Rockwellian charm that really enchants.

So say you’re on your way to West Stockbridge. Or, because he has so much history with the area, just in the glorious Berkshires to see some Normal Rockwell historic art before some skiing at the amazing nearby Massachusetts (and upstate New York) ski resorts. Or, to just find a parking spot off Monument Mountain in Great Barrington for a hike. What ever you are in the Berkshires for, even if it is to see the courthouse Arlo Guthrie sung about in “Alice’s Restaurant” in Lee, and because it’s a perfect area for it, before you plan to go for a cannabis-infused hike near Mt. Greylock (you should probably pack some DIY cannabis dosed ranch oyster crackers for the trip), before or on your way to all of that, Canna Provisions Lee is where to stop and see us.

At Canna Provisions Lee you’ll find the best in marijuana tincture, cannabis edibles, craft cannabis flower (like the exclusive to Canna Provisions cracked pepper and tart citrus-flavored strain Golden Bough from Wiseacre Farm Cannabis), as well as soothing wellness cannabis topicals, and even special kits and pre-roll bundles for those looking to stock up for the day, week, or month.


Check out our online menus at our stores for the marijuana flower, prerolls, edibles, topicals, concentrates, and other goodies to help deal with the stress, anxiety, physical or existential pain that 2020 has brought upon you.
