Worcester Ranked Among Worst Cities to Visit in Summer

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

 

Worcester is not a Summer vacation destination. Out of 80 major cities in the United States, Worcester ranked #76 of the worst cities to travel to during the summer.

Worcester finishes in the bottom ten of all but one of the summer travel rankings in a new report by WalletHub. Worcester is in the Top 5 fewest attractions and is dead last with the worst parks and recreational facilities.

Overall, Worcester finished behind only Syracuse, NY, Providence, RI, and New Haven and Bridgeport, CT.

One bright note for Worcester is it finished in the top half (#38) in the ranking of costs and hassles of getting to the city.

Methodology

Wallethub’s methodology of its summer travel rankings is a weighted system based on cost and time of travel, local costs, weather conditions, attractions and parks and recreations. The study also focused on the costs of traveling between July 11 and July 19 this year - as July is the most popular vacation month of the summer.

Between Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York, only two cities cracked the top 50 - Boston at #47 and New York City at #49.
