One of the most interesting historic cities in the United States, the New England city of Worcester is itself named after an English city and the city center is full of historic buildings like the Mechanics Hall, the classical Union Station and the City Hall. Worcester is a city full of character with an attractive downtown, a great standard of living and plenty of heritage for expats living in Worcester to check out. Popular local sights like the Burnside Fountain and the Higgins Armory Museum are well worth visiting and a walk through town will show expatriates in Worcester why the city is sometimes affectionately referred to as "The Heart of the Commonwealth". Alongside plenty of things to see, the city has all the amenities, atmosphere and living standards expatriates living in Worcester could ask for. Settling in issues like finance, family and relationships may still crop up, however, and this is where InterNations can help. Members can get information on all such topics in our online Expat Magazine, our dedicated collection of expatriation-related articles, or simply use the online expatriate network to ask fellow expats for advice and information.

Being located some forty miles from Boston, the city of Worcester is becoming ever more closely linked with its larger neighbor and this is nowhere more true than in terms of transport. Expats moving to Worcester will usually find it easiest to fly to Boston's Logan International Airport or the T.F. Green Airport in nearby Warwick. There are trains and intercity buses to Boston and pulling into the beautiful Union Station is a great way for an expatriate moving to Worcester to arrive. While traveling to the city, you may like to browse our content written by other InterNations members on their own experiences of working abroad and expatriation. You can also get information on the latest things to see and do in the city from other expatriates living in Worcester, who are easily contacted through our online forums or private communications.
If the InterNations website is a good way to find out about life as an expat in Worcester, it's also an easy way to get in touch with other global minds and the city's international community. Settling into any new city is substantially easier when you are a part of an international network, but even in the absence of other expats living in Worcester, it's a welcoming and outward looking city. As an expatriate working in Worcester, you can expect a bustling working environment and vibrant local cultural scene. In fact, the city's festivals, arts and sports scene are all in some way linked to its Massachusetts neighbors and expats working in Worcester may well find themselves feeling at home in Boston, Springfield and other local centers as well.
