16 Reasons Why Massachusetts Is The Best State


16 Reasons Why Massachusetts Is The Best State

I'm from Lynn, Massachusetts and I'm proud of it! Here are sixteen reasons why Massachusetts is the best state:

1. Tom Brady

We have the best looking team in the NFL thanks to this guy! He is what holds New England together and even if you hate him, you love him.

2. Fluff

Did you know fluff is made in Lynn, Massachusetts?

3. Boston Sports

Boston sports are clearly the best, with the coaches, players, and fans supporting them! Whether you're at a Bruins, Celtics, Patriots, or Red Sox game, everyone there is full of energy and rooting for the best time in the league.

4. Dunks

Bostonians love their coffee. Thankfully there's always a Dunks right down the street from one, and another across the street from that one!

5. The Cape

Known as "The Cape" to residents of Massachusetts, it has everything: beautiful sunsets, beautiful beaches, salt water taffy, P-town, and so much more.

6. Boston Strong

The whole city and state come together to support one another on occasions like sports games, Marathon Monday, the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, and so much more. We are truly #BostonStrong.

7. Faneuil Hall

Faneuil Hall features numerous stores and restaurants along a cobblestone path full of street performers. Comprised of four destinations: North Market, South Market, Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, this historic gathering spot is the city's central meeting place that attracts more than 18 million visitors each year.

8. The Driving

If you can drive in Boston, you can drive anywhere. Every city says they have the worst drivers, but Boston KNOWS they do.

9. Fenway Park

Fenway Park is the oldest ballpark in Major League baseball and is the home to the beloved Boston Red Sox. Located at 4 Yawkey Way near Kenmore Square, it has also hosted numerous concerts including Zac Brown Band, Billy Joel, Backstreet Boys, and Paul McCartney.

10. Boston Marathon

The Boston Marathon began in 1897 and is held annually on Patriots' Day, the third Monday in April. It is the world's oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world's best-known road racing events. It is New England's most widely viewed sporting event as it attracts 500,000 spectators each year. "Marathon Monday" is a holiday to Bostonians as it is a day where the city and state come together and support one another through their best and their worst.

11. The History

Massachusetts has played a significant role in American history since the Pilgrims founded Plymouth Colony in 1620 after seeking religious freedom. As one of the most important 13 colonies, Massachusetts became a leader in resisting British oppression. In the early 1800's, Boston became the driver of America's industrial revolution and the first railway in America was built south of Boston in the 1820s.

12. Salem, MA During Halloween

Everyone must visit Salem, Massachusetts, during Halloween time at least once in their life. From the numerous museums, haunted tours, and Hocus Pocus filming sights, Salem is the place to be during the month of October. There are also many historic homes in Massachusetts and the New England area but Salem offers a variety of homes and insight into history and culture, which is hard to match.

13. Plimoth Plantation

Plimoth Plantation is a living history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It's a re-creation of the small farming and maritime community built by the Pilgrims along the shore of Plymouth Harbor. You will find modest timber-framed houses furnished with reproductions of the types of objects that the Pilgrims owned, aromatic kitchen gardens, and heritage breeds livestock.

14. Colleges And Universities

Boston has some of the best colleges and universities in the country, including all five UMass's (UMass Amherst, UMass Boston, UMass Dartmouth, UMass Lowell, and UMass Medical School), Boston College, Boston University, Harvard University, Northeastern University, MIT, and Tufts, just to name a few.

15. Hospitals

Not only does Boston have the best colleges and universities in the country, but they have some of the best hospitals as well, including Boston Children's Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Tufts Medical Center.

16. New England Aquarium

The aquarium is one of my favorite places in Boston. It is home to over 15,000 different kinds of marine life and is truly a sight to see.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
