Getting to Central Mass By Car
Central Massachusetts is a geographic crossing point for many New England highways, and is therefore easily reached by car:
From Boston and points north and east, I-90 will take travelers past Worcester in the southern part of the region. Mass Route 2 traverses westward from Boston in the northern part of the region, passing near Fitchburg, Leominster, and Gardner.
From New Hampshire, Vermont, and points north, take I-91 South to Route 2 East or Mass Pike East.
From upstate New York and points west, I-90 travels through Western Mass and into Worcester before continuing on into Boston.
From Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York City, and points south and west, I-395 travels north from I-95 into Worcester. To continue further north, travelers can pick up I-190, which ends at Mass Route 2.
