Cities In Massachusetts
There are a number of cities in Massachusetts that are enjoyable to live in and visit if you are in the New England area. The state of Massachusetts is one of the oldest in America, with cities that are also some of the oldest in America. In many respects, when you head back to Massachusetts to visit or move there to live, you are going back in time and seeing one of the places America truly started. The list below reflects some of the best cities in Massachusetts if you are heading to that state.
- Newton, Massachusetts One of the top ranked places to live in all of America, Newton, Massachusetts is a small town a 45-minute train ride from downtown Boston, which is more or less the epicenter of Massachusetts and all of New England. However, Newton is the quintessential place to raise a family in Massachusetts, with the old world American charm and safety of an old fashioned American suburban neighborhood.
- Waltham, Massachusetts Waltham is an old industrial city in Massachusetts and is known for its cotton mills and stop watches, and Bentley and Brandeis Universities. Waltham is just outside Boston and has the small town feel of a great place to grow up in or spend a weekend away from the city.
- Cape Cod, Massachusetts Long known as one of the ideal summer retreats for most people in New England and one of the primary places to get the freshest seafood on the East Coast, Cape Cod is a must-see when visiting or venturing into various cities in Massachusetts. It has relatively harsh weather in the winter and is quite packed in the summer, but in the spring and fall it may be one of the best places to spend a weekend in the state.
- Weymouth, Massachusetts Right beside Cape Cod is Weymouth, a small city in Massachusetts known for its Irish heritage and charming small town American feel. What's even better is that Weymouth is rarely as crowded as Cape Cod, offering an alternative escape for tourists and locals looking to get away on the ocean for a period of time.
- Boston, Massachusetts The largest city in the state and the largest city in all of New England, Boston is home to the cosmopolitan side of Massachusetts, the Boston Red Sox and some of the best universities in the world. If there is one city to visit and spend time in while in Massachusetts, it is Boston. Living there, however, is relatively expensive.
