Massachusetts  officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island to the south, New Hampshire and Vermont to the north, and New York to the west. The capital of Massachusetts and the most populous city in New England is Boston. Over 80% of the states’s population lives in the Greater Boston metropolitan area, a region influential upon American history, academia, and industry.[43] Originally dependent on agriculture, fishing and trade,[44] it was transformed into a manufacturing center during the Industrial Revolution.[45] During the 20th century, Massachusetts’s economy shifted from manufacturing to services.[It is today is a global leader in biotechnology, engineering, higher education, finance, and maritime trade.[47]

Plymouth was the site of the first colony in New England, founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims, passengers of the Mayflower

Massachusetts is the 7th-smallest state in the United States. It is located in the New England region of the northeastern United States and has an area of 10,555 square miles (27,340 km2), 25.7% of which is water. Several large bays distinctly shape its coast. Boston is the largest city, at the inmost point of Massachusetts Bay, and the mouth of the Charles River.

Despite its small size, it features numerous topographically distinctive regions. The large coastal plain of the Atlantic Ocean in the eastern section of the state contains Greater Boston, along with most of the state’s population,[43] as well as the distinctive Cape Cod peninsula. To the west lies the hilly, rural region of Central Massachusetts, and beyond that, the Connecticut River Valley. Along the western border of Western Massachusetts lies the highest elevated part of the state, the Berkshires.

The U.S. National Park Service administers a number of natural and historical sites in the state.[136] Along with twelve national historic sites, areas, and corridors, the National Park Service also manages the Cape Cod National Seashore and the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area.[136] In addition, the Department of Conservation and Recreation maintains a number of parks, trails, and beaches.
