People move to Maryland for many reasons, but one primary pull to the Old Line State is its extremely high employment rate.

Marylandians also commonly endure the short commute to D.C.

Maryland residents are also attracted to the state’s abundant waterways, beaches, and coastlines along the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. The most popular beach in the state if located in Ocean City, but natives know of the many additional, idyllic beaches scattered alongside the Eastern Shore.

The state of Maryland also has a vibrant foodie culture, abundant casinos, and a history of equestrian racetracks in its larger cities as well as many state and national parks, giving people plenty of reasons to migrate to the state.
