There’s Nothing Quite Like Taking A Walk Down The Shores Of Massachusetts’ Wachusett Reservoir At Sunset

There are plenty of nature spots in the Bay State to take a stroll, but next time you’re looking for somewhere new, be sure to head to Wachusett Reservoir. Not only does this 65-billion gallon body of water supply our state with a vital resource, it’s also home to 37-miles of shoreline to stroll upon. With shores in Boylston, Clinton, and many other towns, you can relax upon the water right in your backyard.

Wachusett Reservoir gets especially other-worldly at sunset, so make sure to plan your trip in the late afternoon. If you’re looking for some of the best sunsets upon the water in Massachusetts, a walk down the shores of Wachusett Reservoir needs to be on your to-do list.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
