Worcester sits among major metropolitan regions in Massachusetts. This is why Worcester is known as “the heart of the commonwealth.” Worcester is also the heart of AA in an area which is known for its recovery and 12 step meetings. There is a diverse group of people who live in Worcester due to the immigrant population that came to Massachusetts a long time ago. This makes for interesting AA meetings and a culture that is wide and colorful. Along with being home to several AA meetings, Worcester is also home to several famous libraries and museums; such as the EcoTarium, American Antiquarian Society, Worcester Art Museum and the Higgins Armory Museum. After your AA meeting you may want to stop and check one of these museums out!
