"Has a lot of options for its residence"

There is plenty to do in Worcester, several museums to visit like The Higgins Armory. An array of parks to bring your family to. Wanna hear some live music? Pick a venue based on your music type and search Worcester, guaranteed to find several places to choose from or you can check out the DCU center and see what bands will be playing. Numerous community theaters to choose from if you want to catch a play. Some local businesses help support the community by offering some free services and or discounted services as long as you can prove you live in Worcester, like free yoga sessions and some vets will offer a free or discounted first exam for family pets.

The restaurant choices are really good and diverse with most of them being on Rt.9. Shopping is easy and there are a variety of stores to choose from. UMass medical makes it easy to find a doctor or specialist for anything. Traffic can be bad at times just like any other city. Downtown parking can be a problem and expensive. If you can park your car on a near by street do so and walk your way through downtown instead of paying for parking.
  • Plenty of cultural events to choose from throughout the year
  • Parking and Parking garage cost
