Southeastern Massachusetts is a diverse region with a healthy mix of cities, suburbs, and rural areas. Our economy ranges from agriculture and fishing to high tech manufacturing and service businesses. Our geography includes hundreds of miles of coastline, the state's largest natural lakes, and thousands of acres of wetlands and forests.
