BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Is Massachusetts one of the rudest states in the country?
According to the "50 Friendliest States In America" list from Big 7 Travel, it is.
Massachusetts came in at 47 on the list, which came from the travel site surveying their social media audience (yeah, real scientific method there).
"MA locals aren’t exactly rude, per se, but the overall indifference towards strangers can take its toll," the site wrote. "Ignoring people isn’t exactly a trait that will put Massachusetts among the friendliest states in America. It also takes a long time be accepted as true Bostonian, not just a blow-in."
Minnesota came in first place.
At least we beat New York, which came in dead last at 50.
