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.
