It has good basic jobs. It has nice people and community. Very good shopping, decent educational opportunities all around, and great access to health and spiritual resources. It does not have a good crime rate, higher education( like grad school), night life is okay, and there is some weather issues the last few years for a moderate climate. The cost of living is very high in Maryland, the amenities are okay if you means access to resources, very few tech resources, no job outside of retail and restaurants that pay well at all. The recession devastated the community a few years ago and they are trying to repair the best they can if that context helps at all.
