U.S. News & World Report announced today something we at the Seaport have known for years: Massachusetts is the best state in the country! The magazine claims our “vibrant academic environment, innovative and supportive health care policies and modernizing economy, measure for measure, make this small New England powerhouse with a population of 6.8 million the strongest state of all.” Aw shucks, you’re making us blush. While our weather may be a bit odd (we’re looking at you, warm Wednesday and snow Friday!), U.S. News says we have a bright future ahead with our diverse businesses all having an eye for innovation. Grab a Sam Adams or a Dunkin Donut and celebrate being the best!
