What makes Lowell so hip and charming? It’s a genuinely friendly, creative city that offers you abundant opportunities to experience and celebrate its arts, heritage and culture, all with the backdrop of unique, man-made canalways and scenic natural settings. What will you find? A friendly community with a thriving arts and culture scene, interesting galleries and the largest artist community in the Northeast.
