From gorgeous white sandy beaches to our diverse population’s rich cultural heritage, the South Coast of Massachusetts has it all. We boast livable communities with gorgeous ocean vistas, a wide range of affordable housing options, a strong commitment to arts, and a talented workforce.

In the days of whaling, New Bedford was called “The City that Lit the World” from whale oil. The entire South Coast is committed to the Blue Economy, an economy where the sea remains an important asset, but with base industries & new industries built with sustainability in mind. Massachusetts is dedicated to cost-efficient clean energy, and the South Coast will soon be the epicenter of new clean energy from offshore wind production. Our rich past embraces our future.

Arts and culture abound on the South Coast. From local artists to large and historic venues for national performing artists, the commitment to building our livability around arts and culture propels the region forward. The South Coast’s diverse population, with people who settled here from the Azores, Cabo Verde, and the far east, adds to the richness of our arts, food, and cultural scene, where you can enjoy one of many cultural festivals throughout the year. Of course, the ocean around us holds a magical place in our hearts as a source for enriching the soul.

With a cost of living and quality of life unheard of today, the South Coast boasts a talented workforce and sophisticated infrastructure. Less than an hour from the amenities of Boston and less than a half-hour from historic Providence, the South Coast is a special place that has evolved to embrace today’s needs while retaining quiet charm most of us thought was sadly gone from our lives.

Life doesn’t have to be crazy. Work doesn’t have to be a hassle. Wake up to a beautiful sunrise or sip a drink with a perfect sunset. Live and work on the South Coast of Massachusetts. We can assist you in many ways to make this gorgeous corner of the world your home to live, work, learn, and play.

We are waiting for you.
