For many visitors driving to the Berkshire Hills along the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90), Lee, Massachusetts, 125 miles (201 km) west of Boston, 45 miles (72 km) southeast of Albany, NY, and 4.3 miles (7 km) south of Lenox, is the gateway to the Berkshires (map).

Here's how to reach Lee by plane, train and bus.

Leave the highway at I-90 Exit 2, head north along US Route 20, and within a mile you're at the center of Lee on Park Place.

Here you'll find a small park, the Visitor Center for tourist information, the nice bright-red-brick Memorial Hall, the white New England high-steeple First Congregational Church.

In the center and in the verdant countryside surrounding Lee are several historic inns and B&Bs and comfortable hotels and motels, and the usual collection of shops and businesses.

The famous Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival is actually located in the tiny hamlet of Becket MA, 9 miles (14.4 km) east of Lee, but Lee is the closest town of any size. Then there's Santarella... More...

October Mountain State Forest borders the town. More...

By the way, the hamlet named South Lee is on MA 102 south of the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) and Lee proper.
