Many people associate Massachusetts with its rich history, the Boston Red Sox and its many universities, but the Bay State has a new title to claim.
Massachusetts has been ranked the best state to live in by 24/7 Wall St.
A typical home in Massachusetts is valued at $338,900, well above the national median home value of $181,200, according to the study.
And, New England can claim victory to the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, as well. Connecticut trails Massachusetts, followed by New New Hampshire.
Mississippi, the poorest state in the country, trails the other 49 states.
