The town of Adams is rich in history! Two museums are a must see! Take back a step in time to the 1700s and visit The Quaker Meeting House. It is the town's most important landmark and pays tribute to Adams' first settlers and their pioneering spirit. http://www.berkshireweb.com/quakers/

Since Adams is a chic, New England bedroom community, the in-town nightlife is limited! However, since Adams is a tranquil, bucolic town belonging to Berkshire County, the electrifying nightlife is a short drive away!
Berkshire County is 1 of 4 counties that encompass Western Massachusetts. Berkshire County, also known as "The Berkshires," is a pulsating hub for tourists who appreciate the nightlife cultural activities, museums, sporting events, breathtaking scenic landscapes & outdoor recreation.
