Watch a Sunset at Wachusett Reservoir

Originally added by Marilia Lima

It's an amazing romantic yet also family spot and highly recommended for outdoor fitness.

Wachusett Reservoir is located in central Massachusetts, northeast of Worcester. Easy location and parking, you can go anytime of the day and you won't be disappointed. The Reservoir is the second largest body of water in the State of Massachusetts, taking place in 5 cities around the area, West Boylston, Clinton, Boylston, Sterling and Lancaster. 

There are many spots to fish, to hike, to run, to picnic and many other creative activities. Actually, no swimming! The best time of the day is around sunset, the place gets crowded with people stunned by the gorgeous view.

A local classic

Great place to picnic with friends or take photos! Can get kind of busy as it is very easy to get to (right off the road) , but the sunsets are great! Keep in mind it is a reservoir so no swimming.

One of my favorites

I live right down the road from here and every chance i get i will go and watch sunset or just take in the view. also a really great place for a short walk
