Can anyone tell me about Worcester? Specifically, I'm interested in the smaller cities/towns around Worcester because I love the idea of being near enough to take advantage of the cultural opportunities. Thanks so much!

If you do a search, I think you will find many discussion of Worcester, with the majority suggesting that it's not a very great place. It has some cultural opportunities, but the majority of people seem to think it's a great place to avoid.

Being this is the place I practiced my Trade until my injury - disability - then subsequent handicap.

Its OK to live--OK---Culture--Every place has some so does Worc. Its loaded with Colleges---So if you are big into College Bar night--Its the Place for you 100%.

The Baseball team and the Hockey team are fun.--First Night and the 4th of July Fireworks are good too-----The Different Festivals are awesome---We lost the Italian Festival at Our Lady Of Loretto Church---That seemed to be the Fav---But Mount Carmel's Festival is OK too---

We get more snow from the City north and West----Our Politics are a JOKE-----

But the towns most are nice---Holden-The Boylstons---Rutland - Princeton---Northboro--

All in all--I would give the city a weak C--The surrounding towns a sound C.

Just my opinion.

good luck!!!

Any questions do not hesitate to PM..

I agree with the above posters.

I love Worcester tho. Glad I don't live there! LOL The area I love most is on the west side. Salisbury Street area, & off June Street, etc. Love the older homes over there.

Worcester has a very nice Art Museum. In the summer there are some nice concerts held at Institute Park. We saw a cool Beatles tribute band there once. The symphony has a concert too. I'm not sure if that one was at Institute Park or Elm Park. The St. Patrick's Day parade is fun for the kids. I even enjoyed it myself, but never knew who the dignitaries/politicans were that were marching.

My husband and I lived there for several years, but knew that when we started a family we would want to move to the surrounding area for better schools. We moved to Charlton for a few years and then down South eventually where we are now.
