The city of Worcester is situated at the center of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, roughly 50 miles west of Boston. Home to nine college and universities, Worcester is teeming with student housing and short-term rentals, just minutes from culture and arts attractions like the Worcester Museum of Art, the Hanover Theatre and Conservatory, and the pure acoustic sounds of Mechanics Hall.

Worcester also offers much to delight any history buff, including the American Antiquarian Society research library, Bancroft Tower at Salisbury Park, and the Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial. For lush greenery, abundant florals, and outdoor recreation facilities, residents enjoy their time at Elm Park and Green Hill Park. The interactive and ecological exhibits at EcoTarium are fun for the whole family, especially the planetarium and treetop trails. Artisan and antique finds are sold every Saturday morning at Canal District Farmers Market.

Boston is approximately a one-hour drive from Worcester, giving residents the convenience of weekend trips to the Boston Harbor. Residents living in Worcester are comforted by the proximity to the rail line at Worcester Station, the regional airport, Interstate 90, and Interstate 290.
