What Bert Has To Say About Worcester Metro Area

Worcester is the second largest city in Massachusetts. From its roots in the Industrial Revolution, it is evolving into a diverse research, manufacturing, and technology center, featuring a significant health care presence and a large biotechnology research park. The downtown is being gradually restored and modernized. Origins as a cultural center continue with the area’s many small museums and colleges, as well as a good set of small performing arts amenities. Mountain areas to the west and lakes mainly north offer good recreation opportunities. Cost of living is influenced by more expensive areas east and is high for local income levels.
