This Western Massachusetts Spot Is #1 For River Rafting And Tubing
Folks in The Berkshires experienced some summer like weather on Thursday and Friday of last week and into the weekend. If that didn't get you all jazzed up for more, I don't know what to tell you!
The temperature on Thursday in Boston, Massachusetts reached a record high of 88F.
Your thirst for outdoor adventure should be increasing by now and river rafting and tubing should be on your list for 2023.
One of my very first memories of moving to Western Massachusetts was a trip down the Deerfield River. Perfect weather, a great group of people, a massively exciting adventure, what more could you want?
The Deerfield River (75 miles) runs from Southern Vermont through Massachusetts to the Connecticut River.
