New Home Communities in Worcester, MA

A move to Worcester, Massachusetts is a smart one. Consistently coming on top in the nation for job growth and satisfaction, this small city packs as much punch as even its much larger Massachusetts neighbor. You don't have to take our word for it, either. Boston Business Journal called Worcester the number-3 hub in the country for job creation, CareerBliss.com named it one of the "happiest cities to work in," in the US, and Forbes said Worcester was one of the top ten "Most Livable" cities in the nation. Those are strong endorsements, but they make sense in the context of all of Worcester's advantages: a well-educated work force, a business-friendly climate, and a location in central Massachusetts, one of the most culturally-rich states in the union.

Worcester's biggest asset when it comes to the arts and entertainment is the DCU Center, a huge entertainment venue that has welcomed the likes of the Ringling Brothers, Disney On Ice, and the Harlem Globetrotters. This is a venue built for big-ticket events. However, sometimes you want a quieter experience with the arts. If that's your goal, visit the Arts District and peruse the area's galleries.

There are also a number of museums you might wish to explore. Some will take you to a faraway time and place, like the improbably large Museum of Russian Icons, which, thanks to a generous donor, happens to be located here. Some of these museums will delve into the history of your own home town. Old Sturbridge Village, an authentic 1830s preserved town, doubles as the largest living history museum in New England. The Salisbury Mansion offers still another look at this same period of time, during which New England was growing, evolving, and industrializing. If history puts you to sleep, but you love art, there is also a good Worcester Art Museum, and the Fruitlands Museum, known for its collection of Shaker art.

Of course, your kids probably won't want to spend every weekend in a museum, and perhaps, neither will you. That's why it's a good thing Worcester is also close to attractions like zoos and water parks-- in short, close to capital-F Fun. Start with the Southwick Zoo, home to some of Massachusetts' most unusual critters. The zoo declares itself the "New England's Largest Zoo." We guess you'll have to test that claim, with a visit, soon after your move. Less exotic-- but no less interesting-- animals can be found at Davis Farmland, a family-friendly farm. Your kids will delight in getting lost in the huge corn maze, picking apples, and exploring what life on a farm might be like. In the summer, your family's second home will likely be Coco Key Water Resort. As you can imagine from the name, this is the most upscale indoor water park you will ever visit, and soon it will become your favorite summer escape.
