My wife and I lived on the eastern shore of Maryland at a point in our lives and fell in love with the ocean and bay. We now live near Baltimore. We long for a landscape like we once lived in but need a liberal and diverse setting (and affordable!) for us as a family. any suggestions?

Boston? I hear Massachusettes is the most politically correct state in the country.

Boston isn't affordable to most people.
but who know's, whats the budget? @ OP

I would say Providence, Rhode Island.. very nice little state and beutiful scenery, the city is diverse.. but i dont think the state as a whole is.

All of my ideas will be eastern shore having visited there my whole life and soon to move there ourselves, maybe. Pocomoke, Md.--Chincoteague, Va or close to Wollops Island, near NASA,- VA. In these areas my wife and I have viewed homes to buy. We also looked at Captains Cove, Va at the Maryland-Virginia border right on the Chincoteague bay, but is a little remote for shopping etc.

Maybe Portsmouth, NH or Portland, ME? More expensive than most places down South I'd think, but they're both relatively liberal. Diverse...? Not so sure, at least in terms of ethnic groups. But as far as ocean scenery and classic New England charm, those areas are tough to beat.

The only downside is that the water is kind of cold in the summer. Still swimmable, but not nearly as pleasant as the water down in RI or on the Cape.

The south shore of Massachusetts between Boston and the Cape... Google Plymouth on the maps page and then scan the coast between Boston and the bridge over the Cape Cod canal. Good luck!
