I went to see Lila Downs at Fox Theater and the way the music is enhanced by the place is just amazing. I loved the music and I have been there before to see George and the destroyers. I will continue to attend venues there.

You could stay at the Congress but there are other hotels that might be nicer and most of them will provide transportation if it is within 5 miles. If you are in Worcester - I wish you well! We moved here from Wareham... More
