For the more adventuresome visitor, the Town of Charlemont on Route 2, about 20 minutes west of I-91, has developed hundreds of acres for outdoor recreation, including:
- mountain biking and hiking
- fishing and hunting
- skiing and riding
- mountain coaster
- zipline canopy tours
- whitewater rafting and kayaking
There are several classes of rafting as well as kayaking on the Deerfield River, which also happens to be a fly-fisherman’s paradise. This is four seasons of outdoor fun for the whole family, a weekend getaway for two or perhaps just someone breaking away from the city to enjoy an escape to nature for a few days to recharge their batteries!
Charlemont offers a range of lodging and dining options including resort motels to tent camping, from farm cabins to bed and breakfasts in the heart of town. Dining choices include assembling a lunch to take along with you while you enjoy the natural beauty of Charlemont, restaurants with breathtaking views serving elegant meals, some with live music, and casual dining for families to enjoy after a day on the river or the slopes.
Your Charlemont adventure awaits!
