Copied from Summer 2009

Every summer, many students foolishly choose to spend the three-month break in Williamstown. This page records 2010's incarnation of this practice: the students on campus, where they will live and dine, any notable events, and the like.

Places to go and Things to do

You can easily get by without a car during the school year. But when that 9-5 job ends, you're not left with much else to do because this is Williamstown, MA, after all. Here are some places in the "area" to spend some luxury time.

  • Pittsfield is a bit closer than Vermont with 2 decent lakes. It's a "city." There's also Barrington Stage and The Colonial if you're interested in theatre/cultural activities and have seen everything at Williamstown Theatre Festival already.
  • Lake Shaftsbury, VT. A short 45 minute drive away, Lake Shaftsbury offers a nice big lake with walking path around the lake, a dirt volleyball area, a wide open field for frisbee throwing and other events, paddleboats for rent, and more! $2 or $3 per person. Directions.
  • Tanglewood. This performance space of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops is located in Lenox and is an outstanding location for a picnic and a concert. Try to get there before the end of the summer.
  • Williamstown Theater Festival. It's here again this year. Students are allowed to purchase "Student Rush Tickets" to all performances starting three hours before curtain for $15. Otherwise, shows are pretty expensive, but it's an opportunity to see some good theater without going very far.
