Massachusetts, or officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is one of the most thickly populated states in the North Eastern part of the United States.
The state also known as the Bay State gets its name from the native population of the area, the tribe known as the Massachusett, which can be roughly translated as “near the great hill”. A piece of writing about the state would go a long way, if hosted on social media sites by seohosting365.com.
It would be fun to spread the word about this state, nestled as it is in the New England area of the USA, and which is at present ably headed by the governor Charlie Baker.
Trivia about Massachusetts:
- Boston is the largest city and the most populated, too, with greater Boston being a densely populated area.
- It is ranked as the seventh smallest state in the United States. The state, as the colloquial name goes, abounds in bays along the coast.
- The small size does not in any way spoil the abundant geographical beauty of this region. The state has a large coastal plain to the east while hilly terrain borders the western part.
- The state is predominantly forested with over 62% in the state, though some of the forests have been cleared to give way to urban development. The state is also home to several species of birds and animals as well as abundant marine life.
- The climate is mostly humid, with variations from continental to sub-tropical.
- Though the official language is English, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese are also spoken by the residents of the state.
