And it's Republican, which automatically makes it better than 90 percent of the state.

Judging from presidential elections, it looks pretty solidly purple to me.

I live in MoCo but my job had me working in nearly all counties in Maryland outside the Eastern Shore. I don't think I could ever consider MoCo "quintessential Maryland" as it seems very different from the rest of the state or the typical "bay life" applied to the state. MoCo's identity I feel like is one wishing to be extremely urban and trendy trying to one up Fairfax but not quite getting there due to how the county is run (the higher taxes compared to VA don't help either). I think it's fair to say AAC is "quintessential Maryland" as it has the capital, bay, seafood, and being more influenced by Baltimore than DC.

So , Calvert ,Charles and St Mary's county's mean nothing to Maryland?

I'm from Montgomery County, spent a ton of time in Prince George's as well. Let's be honest, they are nothing more than burbs.

Now if we had a week I would start at Deep Creek, stop by the revitalized downtowns of Frederick and Silver Spring, visit Main Street Ellicott City, the Inner Harbor, Annapolis, a Chesapeake beach town such as North Beach, then over the bridge to witness the farmland of the Eastern Shore, a quick stop to Tangier to hear the local watermen and their dialect before seeing the ponies of Assateague and finally Ocean City.
AAC is in my name, but I have to agree with this. It's fun for the sake of argument to say "If you could only visit one MD county...." but the beauty (literally and figuratively) of the state is its diversity. Heck, I could argue for a place like Howard Co. (Columbia's parks/lakes, Main St. Ellicott City, then the rural areas) if I really wanted to, or plenty of others. Obviously, Annapolis is a big breadwinner for the state due to lots of its qualities but especially the waterfront, which gives it a vibe similar to towns on the shore.
