Question about Massachusetts

It's a small state so can I safely assume that every town or city in it is within a two-hour driving distance of Boston?

No. The western border of the state is 135 miles from Boston. It'll take more like three hours to get to towns in the far northwestern or southwestern parts of the state.

In Holland no one is farther than a 45-minute ride from the sea.

Why do people put a "Z" in Quincy?

by Anonymousreply 412/11/2012

It's a wicked three hour drive, though.

The same reason people put a "Z" in "greasy."

That's how it's pronounced.

Driving from Boston to P-Town, particularly in traffic, takes a lot longer than two hours. But there's always the ferry.

I remember when I moved from California to Connecticut, I had this unshakeable idea ingrained in my head that Connecticut was so small that everything in the state would be (and should be) within a 20 minutes' drive. I was so irritated every time a drive took me longer than that, which was all the time.

Too dumb to read a map, too stupid to use Google.
