Moving to Massachusetts

Massachusetts, a populous state with a land mass that crosses the breadth of the region, offers all the bodily delights and interesting features that are typical of New England. In terms of the outdoors, the state extends from the heavily forested Berkshire Mountains in the west to the delicate beaches and massive bluffs of Cape Cod to the east. Outdoor activities encompass everything from hiking and skiing to white water rafting in the Berkshires to strolling the downtown streets and ethnic enclaves of historic Boston. With all of these exciting features, it's no wonder so many people are moving to Massachusetts.
