Rant:The "City" of Salisbury (by population it's counted as a large town) is one of the worst places to live. And the biggest problem is the City Government which loves the word taxes similar to Maryland. And the failure by such a government is what causing the unemployment rates. Since during my decade living in this town I have seen zero benefits brought by the city except increasing taxes, one of which was the rain tax being brought back by the name Bay Rest R in water and sewer bills. I may also have to mention that Salisbury is ranked as one of the highest taxed while being one of the poorest in the State of Maryland. And with the continuation of the failure by the city government employers flee the city. In the last three years several major employers had a massive exodus out of Salisbury, with employers including Safran Labinal, Gander Mountain, Gymboree, Kmart, and Corporate office of Perdue. Which cost the residents of Salisbury almost a quarter of jobs. And this does not include smaller businesses that had close their doors and possible closings in the next few years such as Sears, Toys R Us, and small businesses. Local Amenities:Attractions: There are very few attractions within Salisbury with the only things available being the Salisbury Zoo, Poplar Hill Mansion, and Brewing Company. There are some seasonal events, but that itself pale in comparison to near identical events approximately an hour away.Community: This is non-existent within Salisbury since the city is literally split in half by a major road that drives pass the town. Which means that the city has two community that have very little relations with each other than school or work. On most cases talking with or having gatherings with neighbors are rare.Nightlife: Nightlife is also non-existent with the only things available being bars or taverns where people drink. The City is also extremely scary at night with crime rates doubled the national average in almost all categories.Dining: Just yuck there are very few restaurants that serve decent food with most places serving either salty, sour, bland, greasy, or sweet foods. The place with the best food in Salisbury is Salisbury University, which isn't available to anyone except professors and students of the University.Shopping: There is a mall with very few stores, a Walmart, Sam's Club, and places like Food Lion. Truth be told no one goes shopping in Salisbury many drive to other places around an hour away.
