Massachusetts, especially the Boston area, is a great place to live. Well over 50 colleges and universities within a 100 mile radius so the entire region is always changing with the new student population every fall. The challenge with the area is the cost of living which certainly is high. Housing drives the cost as well as utilities so if you are on a tight budget and you are not a student be prepared to scale back the size of your home or move way outside the city. Nevertheless, it's a great place to live especially in the summer months.
