We dare you to pronounce it right on the first try. Named after Worcester in England, Worcester is the second-most populous city in Massachusetts. The city boasts an extensive history, particularly because of its industrial and weaponry prowess during World War II; take your dad (or your dad friend) to the Worcester Historical Museum to learn more.

For those more interested in science and nature, visit the popular EcoTarium, which includes hands-on exhibits and an outdoor campus featuring forest and meadow trails. Then, to apply your newfound natural knowledge, take a relaxing stroll through Green Hill Park to try to identify the lake's wildlife. In the evening, visit The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts to catch anything from a burlesque show, Broadway performance, or even a silent film.

Worcester's location at the heart of the state makes it easy to travel to this bustling city. Worcester has its own regional airport, or head to Boston's Logan Airport for a wider variety of flights. Amtrak trains provide daily services from Boston, and coach service is available on Greyhound, Jefferson Lines, OurBus, and Peter Pan.

Boston

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the country, but it is kept young and fresh with the help of over 150,000 students who flock to the city’s prestigious universities every year. Beantown’s many sights and activities celebrate American history, prolific sports teams, and New England seafood. So let's spill the tea (into the harbor, if you will):

Boston's Freedom Trail is the best way to see the city on foot and visit some of the most iconic landmarks of the American Revolution: from Bunker Hill and the USS Constitution to the Old North Church and Faneuil Hall. The Freedom Trail officially begins in Boston Common, the oldest public park in the U.S. and a beautiful spot for walking, picnicking, or ice skating in the winter. Foodies will love the Italian cuisine in the North End and the modern eateries of South End, while sports fans can tour Fenway Park, and art lovers can explore the expansive Museum of Fine Arts.

From Boston, travelers can easily get to the beachy summer destination of Cape Cod, or surrounding states like New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island. With four main train stations and several bus stops in the city, as well as Boston Logan Airport (which, by the way, has some excellent airport food), Boston is a central hub for travel throughout New England and beyond.
