I agree with goldenchilds assessment of DC however I went to a rave at stadium armory using metro from Bethesda and didn't feel unsafe at all. There was even police patrolling the platforms of the station and things went smoothly.

I live in MD and I'm fine here. I would like to explore places after college but on a long-term basis I would stay in MD because of family and friends and strong support net.

I live out West in New Mexico and have lived out West most of my life with exception of my childhood which was spent in Tulsa, Oklahoma...which if you are on the East Coast is the West... but for me, Tulsa is more like Missouri and Indiana very Midwestern feel to it. First off, when I went to visit Baltimore it was in the Winter, I was not impressed at all, I had heard such wonderful things...to me it way too cold, way too humid, nasty and gray, was not impressed with their crumbling infrastructure, the people were walking zombies, no character whatsover, it wasnt the South, it wasnt New England...it had no character whatsover. I saw no worth to the area at all, there was no farming, no industry...just a worthless government area....too bad because it looked like at one time to be a vibrant place but its been smashed by the hand of both the Federal Government and state government. I really see no reason to live there unless you have a cush government job which might not be around in 5 years especially if the Federal Government finally goes completely broke. If I had to live on the East Coast I'd pick North Carolina and that's about it...the rest is either too expensive...to over taxed or its a ghost town because there's no jobs!
