Worcester, Massachusetts


The train run to Worcester was another nice one. Autumn is such a pretty time of year and it is great to watch and smell the countryside flash past from the train.

The train yard was a bit in the middle of nowhere, with not very much around. There was however a new Walmart within walking distance which is always handy. It looks like they are doing quite a bit of building work here so I have a feeling when the show returns in a couple of years there will be a lot more here.

We visited the Higgins Armory Museum with a friend we hadn't seen for ages and her daughter which was really nice. The Quest Gallery was a hands on area which went down well with Willow and her new found friend. They even got to do some Halloween craft activities. My favourite bit was also within this area The Department of Curiosities, a collection of creatures of Mythology.

Worcester had loads of interesting buildings downtown.





The train station was one of the first we saw as we passed it on the train.



Very close to the arena in downtown was Worcester Common which use to be an old graveyard. Apparently there are still quite a few bodies here.




It seemed a very industrial city but I quite liked it.
