Massachusetts Ranked Best State to Live In

According to a 2019 study by WalletHub and two North Carolina Professors, Massachusetts is the best state to live in.

The ranking was based on a composite of 5 different scores, including affordability, economy, safety, education & health, and quality of life.

While it may not be as famous as California or New York, Massachusetts is home to over 12 Fortune 500 companies, and some of the best universities in the country including Harvard and M.I.T.

Boston, the capital of Boston, has a quickly growing economy with various neighborhoods in different levels of affordability.

And although the success of sports franchises weren’t part of this scientific study, few cities can boast the same winning volume.
