Benefits of Living in Massachusetts

Moving from New Jersey to Massachusetts? Massachusetts is like New Jersey in some ways: they are East coast states of similar size and high population density with a mix of urban, suburban and rural areas. Regardless of where you plan to land in the Bay State, here are nine great reasons to love Massachusetts:


It's great place to raise a family

According to an expert panel at Wallet Hub, Massachusetts is rated the number-one state for raising a family due to its safe communities, great public schools and abundant opportunities for recreation. Because 80% of the population lives in the Boston metro area, there is quite a lot of hustle and bustle in the city and nearby suburbs. However, this also means that there are lots of small towns and rural areas in which to live, offering you a choice of environment. Many towns throughout the state rank among Best Places to Live in America for quality of life, especially for families.


It offers excellent higher education options

New Jersey is a highly educated state, but Massachusetts is even higher based on percentage of residents holding a bachelor’s degree, according to the US Census Bureau. Additional metrics such as number of residents holding master’s or Ph.D. degrees makes Massachusetts the top state in a Wallet Hub study as well. The concentration of colleges and universities here is remarkable; besides the famous Harvard, MIT and Wellesley, the presence of dozens of highly rated institutions such as Boston College, UMass-Amherst, Northeastern and Mount Holyoke assure that there is ample opportunity to find the right learning environment for your (or your kid’s) goals and personality.


You'll have access to world-class healthcare

Massachusetts is home to some of the highest-quality hospitals in the world, such as Massachusetts General Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s’ Hospital as well as Harvard Medical School. Massachusetts was a pioneer in healthcare access for all and requires all residents to be insured. These quality and access factors make healthcare in Massachusetts truly top notch, holding the number-two spot among states according to US News and World Report.


Outdoor recreation opportunities are available throughout the year

From the Atlantic Coast in the east to the Berkshire Mountains in the west of the state, Massachusetts has a varied landscape that provides ample opportunity for outdoor recreation. In summer, residents flock to the ocean as well as lakes, rivers and ponds for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and sailing. Check out the Massachusetts State Parks website to find a park near you that offers your favorite activity. The hilly woodlands make autumn prime time for apple picking, leaf peeping and hikes with beautiful views. Once the snow starts flying in winter, Bay Staters can be seen skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating outside. Finally, you know it’s spring when you see the runners prepping for the Boston Marathon.


There's epic history in nearly every town

The Boston metro region was a key location in the American revolution; as such, it has hundreds of parks, preserved sites, museums, trails, and events through which you can relive the battles and lifestyle of the colonists. Massachusetts is also home to many important sites in the Industrial revolution, including some of the country’s first textile mills and other factories throughout the state. Numerous museums, including Lowell Historical National Park trace this exciting time in American history. In addition, kids especially get a kick out of seeing what life was like in pre-industrial New England by visiting Old Sturbridge Village in central Mass.


Sports fans can always find a game

If you love to watch sports, you’re in luck; Boston has professional teams for football (New England Patriots), baseball (Boston Red Sox), hockey (Boston Bruins), basketball (Boston Celtics), and even the New England Revolution soccer team. In addition, numerous collegiate sporting events throughout the state provide ample opportunity to get close to the action. The college ice hockey scene in particular is superb, culminating in the legendary Beanpot tournament which is played among four top Boston-area men’s hockey teams. Other notable annual events include the Boston Marathon in April and the Head of the Charles Regatta in October.


Amazing locally-grown food will please your palette

Whereas New England is most often associated with seafood, there are hundreds of farms throughout central and western Mass that provide a wide variety of local produce, meats, cheeses, and maple syrup. Cranberry bogs abound in the southeast of the state, and you can visit a bog to see how they are grown and harvested. A great activity for kids and adults alike is to visit a U-pick farm, where you can harvest your own fresh fruits including strawberries, apples, peaches, blueberries and pumpkins. If you prefer to leave the picking to the professionals, farmers’ markets and farm stands throughout Mass residents a chance to taste the freshest produce grown just down the road. Last but not least, you can visit a coastal town to enjoy a super-fresh lobster roll or basket of fried clams for a delicious taste of the sea.


It's a gateway to beautiful northern New England

Of course you don’t need to stay in Massachusetts the whole time – the nearby states of New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont hold many great vacation destinations, even if it’s just a quick getaway to a bed-and-breakfast. The White Mountains in New Hampshire and Green Mountains of Vermont, cut and carved by rivers and streams, offer gorgeous pristine forests, excellent alpine skiing, and a quiet slowed-down vibe for when you want to unplug and relax. Vermont is well known for its cheese, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and excellent breweries.


Let's not forget Cape Cod and the Beaches

Massachusetts residents take advantage of cool ocean breezes by visiting Cape Cod, Nantucket island, or Martha’s Vineyard as well as the beaches all along the east coast of the state. These destinations include quaint towns, beautiful beaches, cool clear water, and lots of fun in the sun. The islands can be reached by ferries that run frequently throughout the season.

And finally,

One thing you may not love…

Most gas stations in Massachusetts are self-serve only, so you will have to get out of the car and learn to operate the gas pump, and even teach your kids how to do it. Don’t worry, it’s not hard – but it might be a bit chilly!
