A view of downtown Worcester.

It wouldn’t be a bad resolution this year to decide to eat your way up and down Shrewsbury Street.

Or, a time or two in 2018, attend a gallery talk or exhibit at Worcester Art Museum. Skate the Oval. Cheer a team. Sip coffee from a different cup. Shop the startups and mom-and-pops that would love to see your face and have your business.

There’s no reason not to put your feet on the street more often and check out the nooks and crannies that fill this city. That would be a great thing to be able to say you did, a year from now  — explored and enjoyed the place where you live.

Diverse, interesting, artsy, serious, surprising, striving, accessible and real — the city is all these descriptions and more. Worcester’s got it going on.

But you still have to go find it, for the most part.
