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 bus service is available on Greyhound, Jefferson Lines, OurBus, and Peter Pan.

Hartford

Hartford is the capital of Connecticut, and a New England destination with literary attractions, charming parks, and engaging activities for families.

The homes of Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe, both in Hartford, have been turned into museums to learn more about these authors and their lives. If you prefer Edward Cullen to Tom Sawyer, you may appreciate that a more contemporary literary giant, Stephenie Meyer, was born in Hartford too.

The Elizabeth Park Conservancy is a spread of formal gardens and grounds where you can walk, picnic, and catch outdoor concerts or tours. Kids will love the antique carousel in Bushnell Park, as well as the hands-on exhibits at the Connecticut Science Center. For those who prefer to wander through cute downtowns, West Hartford offers some of the best shopping in the area.

With a large nearby airport, and many intercity bus and train services providing access to hubs like Boston and New York, getting to Hartford is about as easy as a walk in Bushnell Park.
