April may not be beach-friendly, but there’s promise in its milder temps and budding trees. Just a two-hour drive away, the Berkshires are perfect for a spring weekend jaunt. This season the region is particularly art-tastic, with Dutch visionaries at Mass MoCA and Warhol at the Williams College museum, plus dinosaurs galore at the Berkshire Museum. Get there in the new Eos convertible from Volkswagen, which has partnered with Lutz & Patmos and Sigerson Morrison to make driving accessories—cashmere-wool wraps, silk headscarves—that seem tailor-made for top-down cruising in this month’s iffy weather.
