Massachusetts is a small state that packs a big punch. There truly is something for everyone and nowhere is the diversity the state offers more prevalent than in its landscape.

From the lush mountains of The Berkshires to the stunning skyline in downtown Boston, to the breathtaking beaches of Cape Cod and the islands, the variety of areas to live in is remarkable. Along with that variety of areas comes a wide and diverse real estate market, where not only the landscape, but the cost of living can fluctuate dramatically. A home in Pittsfield, Massachusetts could be a fraction of the price of a similar home in the greater Boston area. In other words, location, location, location.

In between Boston and the Berkshires, there are some unique properties in western Massachusetts that will blow your mind, including this unique property in Leverett, Massachusetts. Formerly owned by the late Yankee Candle Company founder, Juggler Meadow is a compound unlike any other.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
