Am so confident to talk about Middlesex county. I will start with it's people. It has very great people with beautiful hearts. It has one of the best cities in Massachusetts. These cities are not ordinary cities but full of life with alot of restaurants, parks coffee shops and many more. It has the best schools in Massachusetts and a population of highly educated people. This county has people from all walks of life and very many languages are spoken this makes it a diverse county and even more interesting. Employment opportunities are also very available unless you don't want to work. But jobs are posted now and then and there is a greater opportunity for everyone to have a job if you are ready to work. Beautiful homes and it's easy to own a home. It's great for rising a family and children because of many excellent public schools. Middlesex county stands out aslo for it's health services with most of the best hospitals in the country at large and medical personnels.

Middlesex County consists of many great cities, including the city I currently reside in- Lowell. I have been to many of the cities and each and every one of them has something new to offer. Lowell is the second most populated city in the USA with Cambodians. The Cambodian culture is very rich within the city such that a part of Lowell is known as Cambodia Town. Middlesex County consist of the capital city of Massachusetts- Boston. Boston is probably what I love most about Middlesex County, simply because there is so much you can do there. There are many places where you can shop, eat, and sight-see. Ultimately, I believe Boston is a city that has it all.
It's a community that highly values education, as can be seen by many of the improvements they have made throughout many of the schools in the county, such as implementing new tech devices. It was a very competitive atmosphere that encourages their students always to try their best.
