Massachusetts Area Codes

Located in the northeast region of the United States, known as New England, Massachusetts is one of fifty states in the United States. The state is limited to the states of New York to the west, New Hampshire and Vermont to the north, Connecticut and Rhode Island to the south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Massachusetts was one of thirteen English colonies, having been the scene of the first wars for the independence of the United States. In fact, the State ratified the American Constitution on February 6, 1788. Massachusetts is known for its pioneering spirit, since the state’s first newspaper, the first institution of higher education and the first public library in the country were founded.

Geographically, the State is characterized by its large number of bays, rivers and lakes. Approximately 55% of its entire territorial extension is formed by forests. The predominant climate in Massachusetts is temperate, with cold temperatures in winter (average 0ºC), mainly in its western region, where the altitudes are higher. In summer, temperatures are milder; in the coastal region, the highest temperatures are recorded: an average of 25ºC.

Although it has a relatively small area (27,360 km²), the state is the third most densely populated in the United States. It is also one of the main destinations for immigrants, mainly Latin Americans. A reflection of this is the predominance of the Catholic religion, since Massachusetts has always been a largely Protestant state throughout its history.

Massachusetts is one of the great financial centers of the United States. The state’s per capita income is the fourth highest in the country. The tertiary sector accounts for 82% of all its GDP, with emphasis on the provision of financial and real estate services. Its capital and largest city, Boston, is one of the great American metropolises.

The main highlight of the State is in education, without a doubt. Massachusetts has a large number of educational institutions; in the greater Boston area alone, there are more than 100 universities. Among many of them, we can highlight Harvard University, considered the largest and best university in the world; and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), one of the world leaders in science and technology.
