#1 Tanglewood

The summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, this open-air music venue attracts thousands of visitors who come to enjoy a variety of classical, contemporary, jazz and pop music performances every year. The Boston Symphony Orchestra has spent its summers at this grand estate located between the towns of Lenox and Stockbridge since 1937. Over this time, many renowned artists have also made appearances at the venue, including Yo-Yo Ma, Earth, Wind & Fire and Steely Dan. Tanglewood is most popular during the summer when the weather allows for sitting on the property's large lawn during performances. Still, the grounds also house multiple indoor facilities and restaurants, which enable visitors to enjoy programs, galas, events and cocerts year-round.

Reviewers call Tanglewood a "music lover's paradise," with charming scenery that keeps travelers returning year after year. Visitors appreciated the well-manicured grounds and world-class concerts, but recommend bringing your own lawn chairs, food and drinks to avoid the hefty prices of concession trucks, restaurants and stores on the property. Whether you bring your seating or rent from the facility, friendly staff can help you get situated, according to reviewers.
