Isn't it though? I can't believe it's still going on. So much bad info in this thread.


If the politics bother you then you know going in it's a liberal state so why would you move here if it's that important? Why hold that against the state? We will move to Tennessee and I know damned well how conservative that place will be I will NEVER hold that against the state of Tennessee.

Here are my two cents as someone who is not a native nor a current resident (in fact I'm a New Englander) but attended UMD for 4 years...

I didn't like Maryland at first simply because nobody who moves outside of their home region likes their new region at first. Not to mention my first impressions were based off PG County. Now that I have returned to my native New England (out of necessity), I get "homesick" for Maryland all the time and travel there as frequently as possible. There is literally something for everyone, whether you like the city, the suburbs, or are the rural type, it's all there. If you're a history lover like myself, there is quite frankly no better place to live...it's right near DC with all its history and free museums, there's Civil War sites galore, etc.

I have a good friend who is moving to Annapolis and I couldn't be more jealous, that little city is beautiful. In New England we don't ever seem to have a spring anymore; you can't beat spring in Maryland. That being said it does get brutally hot there in the summer, but the mountains aren't far, same with the beaches. Up here in "Yankeeville" as my friend likes to call it, we have the Cape, which is overrated, though New Hampshire is a wonderful summer getaway.

The best thing about Maryland is that it has a lot of southern charm while most of its residents can still be bothered to pick up a book that is not the Bible now and again. Not to mention the diversified economy.

Oh, and of course the Terps are one of the best lax teams in the nation and are the 2017 National Champs!

This is dumb thread ,why would you bump it back to life after a year?

First of all, I didn't bump it. It was on the main page, so I chimed in.

Second of all, you don't get to determine what I choose to post or where I post it. Got it? Good.

I lived in the PNW for 36 years and have visited all the west coast states, all the east coast states, and a bunch of the ones through the middle. And I disagree with your assessment.

I've lived in 6 states, visited 35 states, and my experience is that Maryland ranks near the bottom. Very bland, especially in the Baltimore/DC region. Get away to the coast or the mountains and it gets a little better. The fact that Columbia, MD consistently ranks as one of the top communities to live in the entire US makes me want to friggin GAG.

I lived about half my life in Virginia and the other half in Maryland. Virginia wins hands down in just about every category.
