Take a winter walk in Massachusetts on the Central Hills Loop

Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean you can’t take a scenic route. And after a snowfall, a winter drive in Massachusetts can be quite magical. If you want to get out of the house and take in the scenery this winter, perhaps a 57 mile drive on the Central Hills Loop around the Quabbin Reservoir and through several small towns is something to consider.

(Note: Before leaving home for a winter road trip, check the road conditions and only embark on this road trip if it is safe enough to do so.)

In these uncertain times, keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket-to-visit list at a later date.
