"The bracing air of the Berkshire hills, the pleasant vistas of green meadows and waving green fields, the picturesque drives in every direction, and the lordly mountains towering over all, make North Adams a delightful place in which to pass the summer months. Many people wearied by work and exhausted by the heat of the large cities annually come to this vicinity for rest and recreation. The reputation of the Berkshire hills as a health resort has for many years been growing, and more and more people come to North Adams each season to recuperate after a year of toil in the crowded and smoke infested cities." - September 5, 1909

TOURISTS is a resort inspired by the classic American roadside motor lodge, set on the banks of the Hoosic River in the Berkshires city of North Adams.
