Worcester Massachusetts is located just west of Boston. Residents perceive it as the heart of Central New England. Best described as a metropolis with small town warmth, Worcester contains all the beauty New England has to offer. This mid sized city is rich in culture and history, the home of many attractions including the Massachusetts Vietnam War Memorial, The Korean War Memorial, and historic Elm Park. The land was purchased in 1854 using public funds, acknowledged as the first land purchase for a United States public park. Worcester houses ten colleges and universities with at least six others in the neighboring communities and surrounding cities.
My husband grew up just outside of Worcester and visits annually. After every trip, he just raves about the beauty of Worcester; the scenes are breathtaking. The eastern boundary is located at the foothills overlooking the Blackstone River and Lake Quinsigamond. Being a history advocate his chosen activity is touring the Worcester Historical Museum. It contains a research library with over seven thousand publications, thousands of documents, and a large collection of artifacts. This particular visit, he examined the correspondence of Abby Kelley Foster, an abolitionist and raved about the Civil War era diaries and letters. He conveyed the beauty of woodenware and ceramics from Worcester's industrial past. The thing he liked best was the weaponry from the colonial era through World War II.
Summing it up, Worcester Massachusetts is fantastic vacation city for a history enthusiast and would probably be a great place to relocate to.
