One thing I hear a lot around Worcester is that there’s nothing to do. I say it myself sometimes. The truth is, there’s lots to do but sometimes it’s not so obvious. My answer to this is what I’m calling “Turtle Boy Tours”
What Is A Turtle Boy Tour?
This is an ongoing series of posts that feature suggestions for things to do but with a slightly different approach than most similar content has. These are not the usual “Top 10” listicle format. I put together a sort of themed idea for something to do for the day. The posts include an activity and additional information to help you plan a day like: where to eat in the area, where is the parking, additional information that may be helpful.
The posts are all based on stuff I like to do myself. I have no sponsors, advertisers, or others influencing these posts. It’s just me. A person who lives and Worcester and likes to do stuff.
In no particular order.
Ice Cream at WooBerry and a short walk down to Elm Park Elementary School to check out some murals.
Take a hike, get some lunch. This is one of my favorite spots to do some photography. Even in winter.
The Dirty Gerund, hosted by Alex Charalambides and Nicholas Earl Davis, is a high energy event with music, art, open mic and great local and guest poets.
Take a self-guided walking tour of the Pow! Wow! Worcester murals located in downtown Worcester. I’ve put together images, links to artist information, and a map that includes where to park, eat, and find the art that was created during Pow! Wow! Worcester 2016
