Massachusetts is the sixth state of the United States. “The Bay State” has contributed largely to history, culture and business/economy in the country since the Pilgrims founded Plymouth in 1620, while seeking religious freedom. It has also been famous for its intellectual activity of its writers and educators since the 19th century, and Massachusetts might be everyone’s idea of a “big brains hub” since Harvard and MIT are also located there. Massachusetts is also renowned for its fishing industry, that’s why it has also earned another nickname as “The Codfish State.”
