Good place where every one was friendly
Make sure you stay in the good part of town.
Great place to go to do stuff, live and be merry.
I'm surprised I haven't seen another tip on this museum here. (Unless it's here and I just haven't found it.) This is a very nice little museum with some very nice pieces in it including works by El Greco, Monet, Kandinsky and even a Rembrandt. We saw an exhibit of photographs by Stephen Shore that I found to be very interesting and their recent...more
This is a cool place to check out. This place is like a mini-zoo/planetarium/artsy-fartsy culturistic place to go. There is a zoo section with an area of snowy owls, red fox, river otters, bobcats, mountain lion (I don't know if there's more than 1), and polar bears.Inside the building are sections titled "Connecting the Americas", "What is Life",...more

The CBC - Fresh chicken breast deep fries 'til golden & crispy, topped with melted cheddar cheese and bacon strips. Served on a bulkie roll with lettuce, tomato and a side of mayo. $6.99. $1.00 more if you wants chips or french fries. I never ask for chips or fries but they always give me something. You can get dinning certificates to...more
We sat at the bar here, had drinks and sampled some of the fare. This restaurant has some really interesting dishes and appetizers. Really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the Bloody Mary's which are served with a jumbo shrimp for a garnish. Yum! We split a Tuna Sashimi dish that was prepared with Mango, Pickled Ginger, Cucumbers and sprinkled...more
These bagels are made the old fashion way... they're kettled ( boiled). By submerging the dough in boiling water, it seals in the moisture and gives them a shine. Their bagels meet the "requisite weight minimum" of 4 ounces, and their size shows it! These bagels "totally blow away" the competition you'd find in the grocers freezer section. Lenders...more
This place is probably in the Top 5 restaurants of this town. This has the freshest fish in town, and they also have a crab-fest once a year (when its in season).Parking is limited so get there early. This place has a bar where you can get made-to-order food, and the alcohol isn't watered down, either. The dress is business casual, if not better...more

One thing about Worcester is it is very cultured as far as mixed nationalies and such. There is pretty much an even spread about all types of people.
Here is the new expanded library that was just put up across the street from my work.
I recently visited Worcester for work. I rented a car and thought. Hey, I am from Chicago. I can drive anywhere....Boy was I wrong. Worcester has some of the worst city planning I have seen in my life. It's more than drunk irishmen building roads. There are whole intersections without stop lights lights!Look at this....more
Not to say there are any 'tourist traps' around Worcester, but you have to be careful in some areas. For example: Elm park is lovely, within 1 mile you can dine at a *5 star restaurant, attend a leading college, view mansions in the salsibury area, or get mugged, your car stolen, or buy crack from someone who can't even speak english.
This for example is Bacroft tower which used to be a nice park with gesse and such, but note the bars on the windows and blue spray paint vandalism :(
Luggage and bags:
While in New England you can try 'Candle Pin' bowling.
The Pins are much skinnier and the ball fits in the palm of your hand. Look, even a 2 year old can do it!
