Worcester is the 2nd largest city in New England, and I believe it's in terms of 'square miles'. I had a house less than a mile from the Worcester Regional Airport, which is right off Rt. 122. Worcester borders Paxton on the west and Shrewsbury on the east. Lake Quinsigamond is the natural border between Worcester and Shrewsbury. It's very hilly in certain areas, and this town has it's good areas to live and its bad areas to avoid. There's the best bagel place in town on Park Ave, and there's Blue Jeans Pizza, which is the hole-in-the-wall place to get awesome pizza. They have some amazing restaurants, colleges, and I lived there for 5 yrs... happily.
Route 9 has all the shops and views you can imagine. If they're not in Worcester, then they're everywhere in between Worcester and Westborough, a 20 minute drive. The road can be hilly and wavy, and it has more than it's share of traffic lights, so it's definitely considered 'city driving'.
In this picture, you can see for miles!! The house is on a hill, and on a clear day, you can see Boston! The sunrises were amazing, and the view of Worcester was very nice, too! The only drawback was that this road was near the last to get plowed and you needed a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up the road. If you think THAT is bad, you should've seen how steep my driveway was! :o)
- Pros:Great place to live, lots of action and activities
- Cons:Make sure you stay in the good part of town.
- In a nutshell:Great place to go to do stuff, live and be merry.

This place is probably in the Top 5 restaurants of this town. This has the freshest fish in town, and they also have a... more travel advice
