Worcester Scavenger Hunt

Go See Worcester

Victor Infante at Worcester Telegram & Gazette challenged everyone, in the form of a scavenger hunt, to explore Worcester.

The official challenge dates are over but the list is still a good place to start if you’d like to get to know Worcester better. I got 10 during the challenge but am still working my way through the ones I wasn’t able to get to.
