With a perfect blend of small-town living and big-city amenities, Worcester is a great place to call home. Here, renters will be in a prime location to travel all across the East Coast, as major cities like Boston, Springfield, Mass., and Providence, R.I., are within an hour's drive. The diverse architecture, beautiful green spaces and abundance of culture combine to make Worcester a vibrant and livable mid-sized city. According to AreaVibes, the city received a score of 71 for its local amenities, high income per capita, stable housing market and high graduation rates.

Living in Worcester

While looking for apartments in Worcester, you may notice a unique sense of pride in the community that stems back to the city's history that proves it's a very progressive city. Not only was Worcester the first to host a national Women's Rights Convention in 1850, it was the site of the first liquid fuel rocket and the first U.S. radio station, WORC, to play the Beatles!

Depending on your personality, you may want to consider Worcester apartments for rent in a different area of the city. The East Side is the heart of cultural diversity and vibrancy. This area is home to great dining options, annual festivals, the city's largest park, Green Hill Park and Broad Meadow Brook, a 500-acre Audubon Sanctuary. South Worcester is a great place for young professionals, as the dense urban environment boasts many renovated warehouses turned into artist lofts. Families may want to look at West Side, which is similar to a suburban community.
