Setting record straight on ORH

Setting record straight on ORH
GoLocalWorcester column There are many misconceptions about Worcester. One was that we need an access road. Not one person has complained about accessing Worcester Regional Airportsince JetBlue began service on November 7, 2013, and I feel that this may be behind us.

Although Worcester flies daily to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Miami is very easy to get to from Fort Lauderdale.  Saturday afternoon flight with a stay at the Marriott Stanton and a return trip back Tuesday night at a cost of $205 round trip was hard to pass up.
