It really is pleasant to park at Ed Hyder’s, where our walk begins. Worcester’s iconic marketplace offers its own lot along with plenty of street parking in the neighborhood. Within a quarter mile, you’ll encounter a half-dozen unique small businesses that beg for a springtime stroll. Shop spices, brushes, foils, film, florals, and engagement rings all in one go. The corner where Pleasant Street meets Park Avenue is a wealth of warmth and inspiration for your next Worcester weekend.
