Massachusetts, with its 1,500 miles of coastline and a wide range of industries from manufacturing to high tech, is the perfect place to settle down, start a new career, and experience a slice of what New England has to offer. As you’re unpacking moving boxes and rearranging the furniture, keep in mind a few things that will make your transition to becoming a Bay State resident as smooth as possible.
