I'm frankly sick of it and will move when I get the opportunity, unfortunately. It used to be a much more pleasant place to live. Things are changing rapidly.

The whole state is changing, but if you're looking for peace and quality of life I would suggest the Eastern Shore or parts of Western Maryland. They'll be the last to succumb to what I see as the shortfalls of Central MD.
I love Maryland, even today. Baltimore is a great city and the suburbs are becoming much less generic and more urban, which I personally like more than the dull suburbia that used to (and still does) dominate the central region. I love the western portion of the state for it's mountains and towns, while I love the Eastern Shore for it's agriculture and beaches. I don't think that the fact that the suburbs (which are always the worst part of states) are becoming more diverse and more dense is a bad thing. It is making the worst part of the state more unique and livable, with new cuisine coming into Montgomery and PG counties from places like Ethiopia and El Salvador, the "Maryland" culture remaining in the outer areas.

The traffic is awful, as with most regions of the country.

"Recently released data from the IRS shows that about 5,500 more taxpayers left Maryland in 2012 than moved to the state."

IRS data again shows taxpayers leaving Maryland | MarylandReporter.com

I live in the south now moving from MD because of the high taxes in MD.

My area has LOTS of former MDers for the same reason.

Nothing wrong with complaining if you're not happy. I will most likely leave for another state or move to a different part of Maryland. Done with Charles County.. My parents even want to leave, but they just need to sell their house which is difficult at the moment. I would not say its a terrible state, There are different areas and different people and different job opportunities. I have just never been happy here. I've been in this state long enough..

"I have just never been happy here"

Please explain why.

Maryland is extremely underrated. There's literally something for everyone in that little state. When I started college at UMD, I didn't like it at first but the state really grows on you once you get to know it. In fact, I'm trying to move back. The best thing about it is it still has a lot of southern charm while its inhabitants will actually bother to pick up a book.

Maryland has some beautiful parts to it. Still it is rated one of the ten worst states to live in because of the crime, the cost of living and the high taxes. I think the politicians see the working class as little more than a group whom they can tax. I don't see them as truly being concerned about the people they serve. They just seem to be in business for themselves. Hogan may be one of the exceptions to this.

Really? Because Maryland was ranked by US News as the 8th best state to live in. Massachusetts was #1. There's more to Maryland than Baltimore.

It's Taxes. People think they shouldn't have to pay them. Little invisible elves come out and do everything for free.

Maryland 14th in healthcare. Sorry, that's Baloney.
