      Enjoy St Mary's State Park in California Maryland

      I've been living in California Maryland for the last 4 years and have enjoyed the small-town atmosphere and the great nature and hiking trails that provide lots of outdoor activities for those who love nature and adventure. California has a lot of retail establishment including restaurants, shops, and various other places to purchase goods and have the convenience of larger more metropolitan cities such as Walmart, Target, and all of the fast food restaurants. The school system in California is okay and the city does not have a lot of crime so its safe for your kids to play.

      The best areas in California are around the Town Creek Park and St. Mary’s State Park area that has lots of shops and great neighborhoods with family-friendly people that truly care about one another and enjoy this small town atmosphere. California is a city that's continuing to grow and expand by bringing in new small businesses and various other amenities to create a more diverse and fun place to enjoy family life and to entertain friends. If you're relocating to Maryland California would be a great place if you enjoy a small town atmosphere and a community that truly cares for one another.
