According to “World Geo,” Massachusetts is the best state to live in going into 2023. The travel expert, Harrison Jordan, who operates under his pen name, has traveled to all 50 states and plans to repeat this trip, visiting new corners of each one. Based on his own research, in addition to statistics gathered from other reputable ranking sources, World Geo defined Massachusetts as “the best state in America going into 2023!”
And in a new study by WalletHub, Massachusetts once again takes home the gold as the “best state to live in 2023.” The 2 studies ranked on similar factors such as affordability, economy, safety, quality of life, health, and education.
