BU Today- Discovering the Great Outdoors

After a couple of ski trips we decided it would be great to do something a bit more relaxing. And what better way to enjoy the Spring-like weather than a trip to the Berkshires. Last week we made the trip to visit a number of exciting sites and attractions in the most beautiful region of Massachusetts.
The Berkshires are the southern continuation of Vermont's Green Mountains, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and quaint towns. We stayed at the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge which is around 2.5 hours outside of Boston.
On the way to Stockbridge we made several stops to explore the Berkshires region. Our first destination was Upinngil Farm in Gil, MA. Upinngil was a great stopping point to see the rolling pastures and farmlands of the Berkshires. We enjoyed spending time with the farm animals and trying their locally grown and homemade goods. We bought pasta and fresh cookies made from the grains grown on the farm.
Our next stop on the road trip was Shelburne Falls where we saw Shelbu…
This past weekend we made our way up to central/northern Vermont for one of our most epic trips of the year. We skied 4 ski areas in 3 days, met some amazing people, and drank some of the finest beers Vermont has to offer. And if that wasn't enough, winter storm Quinn was dumping snow the whole trip, making for some of the best skiing conditions of the year.
We partnered with Ski Vermont's Chloe Elliot, who planned the stops and and was an amazing guide, imparting us with all sorts of Vermont knowledge and culture throughout.
Our trip kicked off on Thursday night for a drink at Tracks Tavern in The Pitcher Inn, just a few miles from Sugarbush Resort. We met Win Smith, president/owner of Sugarbush and Candice White & John Bleh from the communications team. The team was really excited to share that that Sugarbush will be a part of the Ikon Pass for the 2018/2019 season. From chatting with Win it was great to hear how hands-on he is as an owner, skiing over 10…
We recently made a trip down south to visit the Music City- Nashville, Tennessee. We stayed at the Germantown Inn which was located just
a short walk away from the main strip of Broadway where most of the
bars and live music are located.
The Germantown Inn was constructed in one of the oldest
buildings in Nashville and transformed into a 6 suite luxury boutique inn. Our
guest room featured charming decor, high ceilings, a huge bathroom, and the most
comfortable bed you’ll ever sleep in. Aside from the room, what we enjoyed most
about our stay was the cocktail hour on the patio and the delicious breakfast
served every morning.
For activities, we would recommend taking a walk from the
hotel to Broadway. During the walk, you will pass by the BicentennialCapitol Mall State Park. In addition to great views, the park is filled with
monuments and history about Nashville and Tennessee. Further along your walk,
you will be able to capture great photos of the Capitol building.
