I am looking to move to a safe rural or semi rural area in Md. I will be making a trip to check out both these areas and the vicinity later this year. However I would like to hear from people who live here how they feel about each place. What would make me prefer one over the other. I would like a home with at least a 3/4 acre lot, maybe near farmland. Dh and I love auctions, flea markets, thrift stores and antiquing. I frequent the library often being an avid reader. I am well aware that salisbury is filled with crime. I am hoping Princess Anne and Snow Hill are safer. I am open to any other suggested places to live. Thank you for any advice, suggestions and experiences!

I lived in Salisbury and preferred Snow Hill to these two towns. A bit nicer. Princess Anne does have the benefits and problems of having a state college in the town.

Are you sure you want to live in the country? If you are worried about smells then the country life isnt for you.

Princess Anne is absolutely nowhere I would wanna live. The local news blogs have talked about nepotism/corruption in the small local govt and imho driving around the area screams poor rural town which likely means petty crimes and drug problems.

If I had to pick, Snow Hill would be my choice. Understand that country and rural living often has huge tradeoffs. Conveniences are often a much farther drive and selection once you get there is usually limited. To me, country life is so incredibly overrated.

I reside on the Eastern Shore, and would much rather be in Snow Hill. There has been a bit in the news about the Princess Anne/Pocomoke area lately.

I tend to agree. Plus in Snow Hill you're pretty close to both Chincoteague and Assateague for beach access. Princess Anne puts you about 20+ minutes further away.

That would be a big reason for me as well.... the closer beach access.
