Ever wonder where Boston’s water comes from? Great history in this man-made reservoir! Great for hikes or site-seeing.

One of the largest man-made lakes in the world. Good for hiking and picnics, no fires, no pets. Great photography opportunity.

The Quabbin is the largest inland body of water in Massachusetts. It is a primary water supply for Boston as well as 40 other communities. In addition to stunning views and picnic spots, there are fishing areas and hiking trails, as well as a lookout tower.

When the Quabbin Reservoir was created to supply Boston with water, and unintended consequence was the creation of an amazing wildlife refuge. There are a multitude of trails and a great place to hike or fish are just see wildlife.
