Why We Love Worcester:

Worcester, the third largest city in New England, has invested millions of dollars into reviving its downtown. The City has invested in a $25 million public library, a beautifully renovated park and Union Station, a historic train station.  If there was ever a time to call Worcester home, it is now.

That is just the beginning. Worcester is centrally located, so there is easy access to all of the major highways and the newly renovated Union Station, which offers an express train to Boston in just 45 minutes. Rhode Island is only 30 minutes away by car.

For those who love the outdoors, you are conveniently located near a public golf course, a state park, sailing and ice skating. It is also close to great shopping, four star  restaurants, the Worcester Art Museum, cultural activities, concerts and so much more.
