Unfortunately, some people were born in this hellhole and have no means of getting out. Most others, who move here for work or school, are desperately trying to get out. In short, there is NO good reason to live in, or visit Salisbury, MD. Stay away!!
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.
Ok, I'm back with the second review. I had to walk this morning and I have seen so many sticky burrs in my life. The humidity is ridiculous. I could walk in Atlanta and my hair is perfectly fine but as soon as I take one step out my door, my hair just puffs up. People here do not know how to drive. I have never in my life seen a bunch crash going in one straight direction. My friend just got hit by a car that was on a red light. Like what the hell? A taxis hit five parked cars. I'll be back
First off, let me start with of stores around here. The mall is trash. I don't even know why they call it a mall. It should be considered a plaza. The clothing here is basic. The cars are basic. The people are basic. The schools are just trash. The racists are out here like roaches. There is literally nothing to do and they have the nerve to call this a city. The people here have no education. AT ALL. The white people their taxes but whole time they only make $30,000 a year. The black people are ghetto and barely any of them want to learn about their history. (which is why they're stupid). They swear they are making all this money but I'm like bish where? As long as you drive a 1995 Lexus and have a pair retro 6 jordans you are making money. The white people act like all black people are lazy and ghetto. Like honey, I make $70,000 more than you. All they care about is farming (which is also why they are stupid), their chicken houses, deer, F150, fishing, and Donald Trump. They are the reason why people in Baltimore and D.C. call it "Slower Lower". Everyone here is slow. The schools are horrible. They are so unorganized and slow. I will be back with a second review because I can't with Slower Lower.
