Central Mass

Central Massachusetts is a hidden gem, full of art & culture, unique family fun, and gorgeous natural vistas. Here in the heart of Massachusetts, you can go to “sugar camp” at Old Sturbridge Village’s living history museum; explore everything from treetops to the solar system at the totally unique indoor-outdoor museum, the Ecotarium; and take on Wachusett Mountain on skis in the winter, and in hiking boots the rest of the year. While in Central Mass, don’t miss out on the burgeoning culinary scene, memorable art, or rockin’ live music venues of Worcester, New England’s third largest city.
