Rural Intelligence

Work Phone: (413) 441-2396 Website: https://ruralintelligence.com/


Since 2008, Rural Intelligence has been the digital go-to site for features on events, restaurants, nonprofit organizations, and personalities that make the rural lifestyle so rich in our region. We cover the Berkshires in western Massachusetts; Columbia and Dutchess counties in New York; and Litchfield County in Connecticut. Updated weekly, Rural Intelligence susses out places of interest that other publications may not, helping readers explore the natural beauty, plentiful cultural offerings and interesting people who make up our region. We publish two newsletters weekly: RI Recommends on Tuesdays, which highlight the weekend’s best events; and Intelligence Report on Thursdays, which teases subscribers to the updated content. We publish an annual print guide to summer and the cultural season preview. Both digitally and in print, what most sets Rural Intelligence apart is our voice—Upbeat, conversational, and welcoming, convening a community of readers that consider us like a friend who shows them the best way to participate in all this region has to offer.
