Many states have their unique accent, but not many accents are like the one of Massachusetts. How bad is the Massachusetts accent? Even road signs have it, so that locals would have an easier time understanding the road signs (and obeying them). This goes to show how much this accent defines Massachusetts, the people who live there and their culture.
Aside from the unmistakable accent, Massachusetts has a lot to be proud of, mainly Harvard and MIT, which attract the country’s sharpest brains. In Massachusetts you’ll find the smartest people in the country, and also the most hardcore sports fans. How do these two things go together? We’re not sure, but somehow they make it work in Massachusetts.
