Today we visit a spot close to home that has a lot to offer.  We will begin at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, MA — one of the oldest public display gardens in the region! This morning you can stroll the 15-acre grounds and enjoy dozens of unique garden areas blending intimate landscapes with seasonal palettes. Open year-round, the Garden is an outdoor classroom for visitors of all ages. Experience the beauty of the Berkshires while exploring the natural world! Their display areas feature thousands of varieties of herbaceous and woody plants suited to the Berkshires, with many that are native.  After your self-guided tour we will travel to the nearby Red Lion Inn for lunch (included).  Enjoy a house salad, homemade bread, your choice of 1) Herb Grilled Chicken Breast with lemon-thyme jus or 2) Yankee Pot Roast with pan gravy along with Indian Pudding for dessert.  After lunch, we will travel down the road to the Norman Rockwell Museum.  Celebrating it's 50th Anniversary, enjoy new exhibits such as Woodstock to the Moon: 1969 Illustrated which looks back at the many ways illustrators portrayed news events and reflected popular culture in 1969.  And Norman Rockwell: Private Moments for the Masses. This exhibition offers a behind-the-scenes look at the autobiographical aspects of Rockwell’s art through beloved imagery that conveyed, in both subtle and direct ways, his own interests, anxieties, and real-life experiences.  We will depart at 4pm with an approximate arrival in the Capital District at 5pm.  Non-stop each way.
