Lowell is a historic mill town in Massachusetts and one of the first industrialized cities in the United States. Many of the old mill buildings have since been converted into lofts.

Since its founding, Lowell has been an ethnically diverse town and that tradition continues to this day. From the Irish fleeing from the potato famine to the Cambodian immigrants of today, a promise of a better life has brought people to Lowell from all around the world to Lowell for almost 200 years.

Lowell sits upon the confluence of the Concord and Merrimack rivers. Along with its many canals and historic downtown, walking tours are an excellent way to get to know the city.

Lowell is rich with local flavor and while often outshined by much larger Boston, is one of the cultural centers of New England with its growing and vibrant art scene. With events such as the Lowell Folk Festival, the Southeast Asian Water Festival, and the many celebrations of Jack Kerouac, Lowell has much to offer anyone choosing to visit and a multifaceted and unique community for those who choose to make it home.

Lowell is a city in Massachusetts. Lowell is famous for its mills and multiple gang fights. There are about 35 Dunkin' Donuts and only three Dunkin' Donuts employees who speak English. If you go to high school, you go to Lowell High. It is typical for a student of Lowell High School to skip class to go to Arthur's Diner to get a boott mill, which is a breakfast sandwich made up of 99% grease. If you go to the Voke (the Joke), no one cares about you. Typically, if you are white and graduate you most likely end up going to UMass.

Famous author Jack Kerouac was born and raised in Lowell and pretty much everyone pretends to like him even though they never have read "On The Road". Ed McMahon was born there, too.

A lot of the roads downtown are made out of cobblestones, which is really annoying considering everyone drives a Civic. Most of the year the downtown area is full of homeless people until the Lowell Folk Festival comes along and every suburbanite (from Chelmsford, Westford, Andover, etc.) bravely steps into the city.

It is typical for a citizen of Lowell to have witnessed a drug deal, shooting, or arrest atleast ten times throughout the year.

"Let's go to the packie and then head over to Fort Hill and get wicked hammered!"- Lowell High Student
