Hahaha, anyone else remember when Gaithersburg was the Boonies and no one really knew how far away Frederick was? I remember visiting someone in a new development in G'Burg in the late 80's and it was all farms around.

Seriously, for fun, just ask your neighbors! They probably know what is fun near your house! We used to sped time in DC when I was little but we also did local things, like a local garden walk in the spring and lots of time at Brookside Garden and Wheaton Regional Park. Libraries always have fun stuff for the kids and the rec dept offers classes in the evenings for kids. Local elem schools often have fairs in the spring. I think we did far more locally (2 miles tops) when I was a kid then even county wide fun things.

Being a marylander means being your self. We are very accepting people. I've lived here just about all my life and I say ya'll.

Default Marylanders are

I've lived in Maryland for nearly 10 years and the stereotypical response to that question is this:
Marylanders are rude, snotty, hostile, stuck-up, and downright mean people!!

I have lived all over the world and by far, Maryland has the meanest people of all; no wonder they are so fond of their crabs. Crabby describes them perfectly.

Interesting point of fact about Rockville, F. Scott Fitzgerald is buried there. Rockville is a real town, you just have to get away from strip mall hell to find it.
