If you want to take a trip back in time when life offered a gentler pace, you'll want to explore Otis.
This largely unspoiled, rural area is the site of the Otis Reservoir, the largest recreational body
of water in Massachusetts. You can rent a canoe to tour the shoreline, or rent a boat and motor
for fishing. For the avid trout fisherman, the nearby Farmington River is famous for its stock.
There is a state forest which offers camping opportunities, or trailer camps for your RV, or a
variety of bed and breakfast establishments.
Despite its delightfully preserved "backwoods" character, Otis has several good restaurants
and fascinating shops that have retained their historic flavor. You can even find a post office
that still uses the original bronze post boxes of its 19th century origins. Otis' most wonderful
treasure, however, is the friendliness and warmth of her people. Take a trip back to a kinder,
gentler era - visit Otis!
