Massachusetts has an area of 27,360 sq km and a population of around 6 million people. The state’s capital is Boston.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is a state in the north-eastern region of the USA, in an expanse known as New England. It is bounded in the north by New Hampshire and Vermont, in the south by Connecticut and Rhode Island, in the west by New York and in the east by the Atlantic Ocean. The Charles River is the longest river that flows entirely within the state.
Pittsfield is a very secure place to live in with a very pleasant weather. It is the principal city of the Pittsfield, Massachusetts Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses all of Berkshire County. Pittsfield remains the third largest municipality in Western Massachusetts, behind only Springfield and Chicopee. The western portion of the city contains Pittsfield State Forest, a facility which hosts hiking and cross-country skiing trails, camping, picnic areas, and a beach for swimming. Pittsfield is also home to two lakes, Onota and Pontoosuc, both popular for swimming, boating, and fishing.
I live in the suburbs of Boston and let me tell you it is a beautiful city. It is not huge, which makes everything easier to get to. Go to the North End for authentic Italian cuisine and spend time on the Freedom Trail. One tip: traffic is awful there and the roads are always being worked on- be wary renting a car because it can be confusing, even for a local. The T is a pretty good way to get around.
