Moving to Worcester, MA?

If you are looking for a city that is home to culture, arts, innovation, and education, then you’ll LOVE Worcester! As the second largest city in New England, second only to Boston, Worcester has 181,045 residents. It is known for being progressive and vibrant. Let’s take a look at what makes Worcester a great place to move.

Moving to Worcester, MA: The Highlights

The Name. First off, it’s important to know how to pronounce Worcester. True locals will say “wis-tah”, dropping the “r” off the end completely. If you can manage “woos-ter” you’ll be on the mark as well. Pronouncing the “r” is one way to tell if someone is a transplant to the area.

Education. Many say that the highlight of Worcester is the wide variety of education options available. Home to nine colleges and universities, Worcester offers educational options in just about any field you could imagine. From community colleges to medical schools, there are choices for everyone.

If you are moving to Worcester with children, they will also have many great opportunities. The Worcester Public Schools serve 23,000 students with 33 elementary schools, four middle schools, seven high schools, and 13 other schools such as magnet schools, alternative schools, and special education centers. There are also options for adult education, along with 27 private and parochial schools in the area.

Recreation and Things to Do. From concerts and hockey games to plays and historic sites, there really is something for everyone in town. You can hit up the cool districts for shopping and dining, such as restaurant row on Shrewsbury Street, or the up and coming Canal District. You can cheer on local teams at a Worcester Tornadoes baseball game or Worcester Sharks hockey game. If arts and culture is your thing, you can catch a performance at the famous Palladium Theater. The Hanover Theater for the Performing Arts also hosts touring Broadway shows, comedians, and family shows. If you enjoy the great outdoors, be sure and check out the Mass Audubon, boasting over 400 acres and five miles of trails of nature exhibits.

For some fun weekend plans, here are 10 ideas of fun things to do after moving to Worcester:

  • Hike at Purgatory Chasm down the road in Sutton, MA
  • Learn how to golf at nearby Auburn Driving Range
  •  Check out the Worcester Art Museum
