Even with all the Mssholes and liberalism, Massachusetts is still a great state with tons to offer.

MA has better weather, more things to do, closer to the Eastern Seaboard, the coast, mountains, etc...

Yep, MA blows MN out of the water.

Minneapolis is a fantastic city, but other than that MN is boring. It's just farms.

Mass has the best education in the country thanks to it's excellent former governor.

Mass has a better climate as well for the most part, MN winters are bone chillingly humid cold and the summers are hot with LOTS of mosquitoes.

Neither state is all that diverse outside of the big cities. Minneapolis has quite a large population of Somalis.

I grew up in W.Mass, and I would prefer MA over MN. MN is just TOO cold for too long. Very long winters there. Plus, w/ MA you have a lot of major cities near by for day trips. Plus you have the ocean there too.

People in Minnesota are nicer. Both have similar incomes but Minnesota is way cheaper. Also while Boston and Minneapolis are both liberal politically, Bostonians tend to be very conventional people on a personal level while Minneapolis has more freaks and weirdoes.

I spent a lot of time in Massachusetts growing up, not a fan of the snobiness that is endemic in New England culture (mostly Mass. and Conn.).

MA for all of these criteria, although at the education level they are similar. Boston has a vibe that the Twin Cities can't compete with, and MA as a whole is a more beautiful state.

If you visited Minnesota and saw nothing but farms, then I'm afraid to say that you're a boring person. 2/3rds of the state is forest. Did you drive through on I-90 (which runs ~10 miles parallel to the Iowa border) and assume that's all there was to Minnesota?

Minnesota's education system is roughly equivalent to Massachusetts in basically every measure.
