Just for the heck of it, just curious about where within Maryland people think most represents the typical, average, middle of the road, mainstream USA.

Having not lived in many places in Maryland this is just my off the cuff observation. I think some of the smaller, not so wealthy areas, of the eastern shore would come closest. Most of Maryland is pretty liberal and that area seems a little more conservative and more "main stream".

There's no such thing as a typical American town. This is an incredibly diverse country. Quite frankly, I'm sick and tired of people referring to those of us who live in or near big cities as not being "real Americans".

Agreed. Naming places as more "American" than another only causes more divide among people.

Sarah Palin saying certain areas were more "Pro-America" than others only backfired for her.

Honestly, the nice thing about Maryland and the rest of the country, is that you have a diverse population with a wide range of backgrounds.

maybe the question should be rephrased. what is the most down to earth/socially and fiscally conservative place in MD.

and oh, no eating at starbucks or panera bread jk.
let's see westminster has a panera. I believe wegman's will open a branch in Frederick.
some panera's in frederick too. perhaps starbucks too. well it's hard to avoid that stuff.





I'm going to guess rural western md. rural frederick co may be ok. carroll too.

Or the question could be "What part of MD most fits the prototype of small town America most people have?" Kinda Norman Rockwell-ish.

the dc sprawl is streching into frederick co, im guessing it's mostly frederick and the towns south of frederick on 355. eastern shore won't be effected as much by newcomers i think.
