Are you ready to come home to The Commonwealth of Massachusetts? A northeastern state in the New England, Massachusetts is bordered by Rhode Island and Connecticut to the south, New York to the west, Vermont and New Hampshire to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Massachusetts has played a significant role in American history as the site of the first colony, Plymouth, founded in 1620 by the passengers of the Mayflower. The state is also home to Harvard, the oldest institute of higher learning in the United States. Some notable people from Massachusetts include John F. Kennedy, Edgar Allen Poe, Ed Norton, and John Cena.
Massachusetts is a state with many distinctive regions to live in. The large coastal plain of the Atlantic Ocean in the eastern section of the state contains the Cape Cod peninsula, the west is the rural-hilly region of Central Massachusetts and beyond that lays the Connecticut River Valley. Along the western border of Western Massachusetts lies the Berkshire Mountains range.
Massachusetts has some interesting cities to call home. One of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston is the state’s largest city and capital. Boston became known as the "Cradle of Liberty" in the late 18th century as the scene for many key events there that led to the American Revolution and the independence of the United States from Great Britain, such as the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Bunker Hill. The city is an important port and manufacturing hub, a center for education and culture, and historic location, making it an attractive place to visit or live.
The coastal town of Salem and surrounding areas experienced is known for being the site of one of America's most infamous cases of mass hysteria in the late 17th century, the Salem Witch Trials. In the centuries since the event took place, the story of the witchcraft accusations has captured the imagination of writers and artists, such as Arthur Miller in his work The Crucible, many of which interpretations have taken liberties with the facts of the historical episode in the name of artistic license. Today, Salem is a residential and tourist area with points of interest such as the House of Seven Gables, Salem State University, the Salem Willows Park, Forrest River Park, and the Peabody Essex Museum.
