It is a connecting hub for the Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park, important state parks in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and the Blackstone River Bikeway. Strategically located on Route 146, the Worcester Visitor Center is moments away from the Mass Pike, Routes 20, I-90, I-290 and I-395.

Positioned at the headwaters of the Blackstone River, Worcester's success was based on making connections. The opening of the Blackstone Canal in 1828 linked Worcester to the greater region and the world, transforming a quiet county seat into a thriving center for commerce and industry. Today, Worcester is the second largest city in New England. It is home to diverse neighborhoods, renowned colleges and cultural institutions, and an "Enduring Legacy" of innovation and enterprise.
