My little brother is graduating from college and accepted a job in Salisbury, MD. Neither of us know much about the area so what are some good things he can check out so that he doesn't text me incessantly that he's bored. I live near Wilmington, DE so I expect we'll hang out occasionally (and I can crash at his place to go to the beach!).

Thanks!

Well, at least he has a job, unlike so many other college grads who can only find a job at Starbucks. He will have to figure out how to entertain himself.

I imagine he'll spend a lot of time in Ocean City and the Delaware Beaches.

You kind of have all that screwed up don't you? You should have said,....Yep, Stay away, if you don't like easy going friendly country folk, stay away if you don't like delicious fried chicken, and stay away if you don't like low crime rates.

Maybe you feel that way because some "backwards redneck" didn't like your smart adz attitude, and called you on it.

If there is a slight rise in crime at Ocean City, during the summer, you will see that the Criminals responsible are almost always from some other place , with attitudes like yours.

it's been 9 years since i lived in salisbury, and i still miss it. i found it to be friendly, low-key, compact and accessible, and convenient to some other significant amenities - stores, shopping, beach, restaurants inc. ocean city, and a surprising number of cultural events through salisbury university. i do think that age and stage in life make a difference in terms of how well you acclimate to the area. if you are young and want a lot of nightlife, i don't think you'll find it there, although that was never anything that interested me.

i found it an easy place to be, and i still have thoughts- hopes?- of perhaps returning there in retirement.

I bet Salisbury is much better off without people like you.

That dude is a troll.. He has been to 3 other threads to say the same thing..

There are some neighborhoods I would avoid, such as Downtown or the outskirts of Downtown in East or West Salisbury, further out are better. North Salisbury is nice as well.

Crime is higher because it is a smaller city, so you have to take the good and the bad

South Salisbury (as you are headed towards the Virginia line) looks nice and there are businesses that have opened up in the last few years.
