Worcester is considered very friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. The city is protective of its LGBTQ+ community, according to a 2014 study by Vocati.com, which named Worcester the 26th most LGBTQ+ friendly city in the United States. The city hosts an annual pride day with a parade and festival.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Pronounced “Wuh-ster” — or often “Wuh-stah” by locals — Worcester is the second-largest city in all of New England. Though it may seem like a small town compared to Boston, Worcester is known as “The Heart of the Commonwealth” and rivals many major cities when it comes to art, culture, and history.

Fine-art fanatics can spend hours at the Worcester Art Museum, which opened in 1898 and contains more than 38,000 works of art from all over the world. For theater and classical music aficionados, there’s the grand, historic Mechanics Hall as well as the Hanover Theater for the Performing Arts, both internationally recognized for their world-class productions and ornate designs. Then there’s Worcester’s annual stART on the Street festival, which allows residents and visitors free admission to view works by more than 300 artists, crafters, and street performers.

Worcester offers plenty of options for history buffs, too:

  • The Worcester Historical museum is devoted to local history and runs Salisbury Mansion, a house museum built in 1772 and restored to its 1830s appearance.
  • The American Antiquarian Society — the oldest historical society in the U.S. — collects and preserves printed materials from the country’s first European settlements through the late 1800s.
  • Bancroft Tower was built in 1900 in honor of George Bancroft, a Worcester statesman who served as a U.S. diplomat and secretary of the Navy. Made of stone and granite, the tower stands 56 feet high, giving it the appearance of a miniature medieval castle.
  • The Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial is an impressive four-acre area consisting of a pond, walking paths, and multiple granite structures.

Thanks to Worcester Lunch Car Company, which built many diners in the early- to mid-1900s, you can still find many old-fashioned lunch car diners around town, including the Boulevard Diner, Chadwick Square Diner, and Miss Worcester Diner.

Transportation

The Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA) provides public bus services throughout Worcester and several surrounding cities. Residents over 60 or people with disabilities can ride the bus at half the regular fare, but they must provide proper identification. The WRTA local bus services, as well as train services connecting riders to Boston, run from Worcester’s historic Union Station.
