Massachusetts: More than just chowdah!

When talking about the state of Massachusetts, there is a lot to like about the state in general. With the way that its coast line is set up, there are many coves and beaches. Some of the most incredible hotels and restaurants in the world are found in the capital city of Boston. There, you will find American history as vibrant and living as in any city in the entire country. On top of that, there are excellent attractions in Massachusetts, including Fenway Park, Cape Cod, and other small coastal towns.

Travel in Massachusetts is a big deal, but the state has a lot more than that going on. Education in Massachusetts is some of the best in the country from the lower levels all the way up to higher education, where Massachusetts has two of the best universities known to man. One issue for people living there is that the cost of living can be quite high all over the state. That is the price that you have to pay for an awesome quality of life, though. Folks around the state are still finding job opportunities to be plentiful, which is a testament to how many resources are available there.
