Lets cover off Lowell first. Lowell is a city in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. The estimated population in 2009 according to the U.S. Census Bureau was 103,229. It is the fifth largest city in the state. Lowell and Cambridge are the county seats of Middlesex County

Founded as a planned manufacturing center for textiles along the Merrimack River northwest of Boston, it was a thriving industrial center during the 19th century, attracting many immigrants and migrant workers to its mills. With the decline of its manufacturing in the 20th century, the city fell into deep hard times but has begun to rebound in recent decades. The former mill district along the river is partially restored and composes part of the Lowell National Historical Park.

Lowell is located at the confluence of the Merrimack and Concord Rivers. The Pawtucket Falls, a mile-long set of rapids with a total loss in elevation of 32 feet, ends where the two rivers meet. At the top of the falls is the Pawtucket Dam – designed to turn the upper Merrimack into a millpond, diverted through Lowell’s extensive canal system.

Lowell had the highest percentage of Cambodians of any place in the United States, with 10.37% of its population being Cambodians. There are an estimated 11,000 Cambodians living in the city of Lowell, but local community leaders estimate the number to be around 35,000. Asian Vacation anyone?

The Pawtucket Canal in Lowell, MALowell can be reached by automobile from Interstate 495, US Route 3, the Lowell Connector, and Massachusetts Routes 3A, 38, 110, 113, and 133.
