Fitchburg

Overview

Introduction

Fitchburg, Massachusetts, 24 mi/30 km north of Worcester, has a small art museum that has gained attention in New England. Prints by American impressionist Mary Cassatt and German expressionist Kathe Kollwitz are stars of the collection. There are also Japanese woodblock prints and art by Cassatt's 20th-century American contemporaries George Bellows, Edward Hopper and Rockwell Kent.

We recommend outdoorsy visitors head to Leominster State Forest, along with Wachusett Mountain State Reservation and, in winter, Wachusett Ski Area, both in Princeton.

In the nearby town of Westminster is the Wachusett Brewing Co., not as well-known as Samuel Adams but whose commitment to quality ale is just as strong. Shoppers can check out the more than 100 stores at Worcester Common Fashion Outlets.
