My husband (an EMT), 2yr old son and I are looking to move within the next year or so to the Maryland area. We currently live in Northern California and are spoiled by weather, organic foods, and so forth, but we are relocating for better job opportunities/economy. We would love to be as close to the coast as our finances will allow us. Which area's are the best for new families, but are also not extremely expensive??
Any helpful tips would be very appreciated

Chestertown or Easton on the eastern shore of Maryland would be closer to the coast but job opportunities would be better in central Maryland. There are a lot of resources on your google machine.

Annapolis seems to me to be a good fit for your family. State government is located there (ie. jobs/economy), is located on the Chesapeake Bay, and is not terribly far from the coast.

Montgomery County is hiring or was hiring recently. Their people are not just EMTs or Paramedics. They become firefighters/EMTs/Paramedics. Normally it is a 24 week training class, however there is currently a class in session that is only 8 weeks and is for experienced personnel only. There is supposed to be a 24 week class starting sometime after the current class ends in about 6 weeks.

They recognize that it is expensive to live in MoCo, and do not require you to live in the county. The shifts are 24 on - 48 off. My son is going through the training right now. He lives on the Eastern Shore.
