I have found living in Fitchburg to be quite pleasant. Typical of New England, our town embodies a familiar Massachusetts tenacity that compelled our residents to save a beloved boulder by blowing it up, then later reassembling it piece by piece to preserve it for posterity.
There is no shortage of activities to participate in here. Some of the best areas in Fitchburg cater to the outdoor crowd. Wachusett Mountain Ski Area, for example, is just 7 miles away. Flat Rock Wildlife Sanctuary offers trail hiking in a lovely old growth forest, and Coggshell Park is a great place to go for a quiet date or family picnic.
For those who need their dose of culture, there is no shortage of ways to pass the time. I love to visit the Fitchburg Art Museum and end the afternoon with a frosty beverage. The popular River Stix Brewing on Boulder Drive is just a stone's throw away from that lovingly preserved boulder that graces this delightful small city.
