City of Worcester, Massachusetts

Welcome to Worcester, Massachusetts, the heart of the Commonwealth!

Great cities share common traits - undeniable energy and a vibrant culture that drives growth and epitomizes livability.

Today, those changes are bearing fruit as Worcester is the focus of an incredible amount of public and private investment - conservatively more than $2.2 billion. Worcester’s success is attributable to its low cost housing, high quality of life, an increasing knowledge-based economy and geographic accessibility. As a dynamic community, Worcester is not only a smart city, but a smart choice.
