I have an opportunity to relocate to either state in 60-90 days from PA. and wondering where's a Excellent place to live?
My wife needs a decent area where there's nice places to eat and go.
She's not much of a country girl and likes a nice night life. Shopping areas and family type communities.
But need some property for the race cars and classic mopars of course.
So where should we move to.
My house will be sold soon.

Even though they're small states, it's still a few hours from far western MD to the beaches. Depends on what you need to be near. Frederick County, MD is very nice but has gotten quite expensive. Frederick city has a vibrant downtown with lots of night life plus lots of car shows. Howard County has a lot of nice areas and superb schools but is very expensive. Carroll County is nice and Westminster has everything you could need. Probably get more for your money in Washington County. Lots of cruise ins andh car shows in Washington, Frederick, Carroll, and Anne Arundel counties. Friend of mine lives in Charles County and likes it. Delaware, however, has huge tax advantages.

If you like high taxes and insane 2A laws then MD might be for you.

Maryland is a very diverse State, Western Maryland (Garret and Allegany counties) is very mountainous, low cost of living and quiet compared to the rest of the State, not a lot of night life possibilities, mainly Republican. Central Maryland leans more Democrat, higher cost of living, more night life. If you've got a lot of money, anywhere in Montgomery County will welcome you, very high cost of living, mainly Democrat but has the best night life, it borders Washington DC. Eastern Maryland is flat land, leans more Republican and has the seashore. Picture is Western Maryland (Cumberland).

Cumberland is a 2 hr. drive to Pittsburgh, 2 hr drive to D.C. and a 2 hr drive to Baltimore. Mason Dixon Dragstrip is a 1 hr drive.

Delaware, just for taxes. DuPont owns the state I think and the dynomite guy pays the property taxes. Maryland is neverland, a little worse the Jersey

I grew up in Newark, Delaware. It is a great little...big...town.


I am not rich...but I get off my ass everyday to make sure I am not broke!

Can we get the Mexican cartels to help us with our supply chain issues? They don't seem to have any trouble getting stuff from one place to another.

Try looking it up on Wiki; lots of info & links for every city & town I've looked up.
I also look at yearly weather, taxes, avg income, avg housing prices, median age, etc etc.
I always recommend visiting an area before moving, and if possible, rent a place before committing to a new area.

Middletown is building up quite a bit but it still isn`t full of night life and or much for great shopping. It is a decent town though.

My wife and I looked into moving to Middletown about 6 years ago. The adult communities were on one side of town and the hospital was on the other, and there was one road connecting the two. Local residents told us that during rush hour the road was completely clogged and ambulances had a hard time getting through. That may have changed in recent years. Might be worth looking into.

Southern Maryland
Southern MD here down by Solomon's Island. We are about 1 hour from DC driving 65mph. Wife works up there. You have a choice of either National Airport or BWI. Both about 1 hour away but with traffic, figure 1 1/2. That said, housing is cheaper by far down here. Weather is completely different than Washington DC area. Southern MD is conservative but not completely hicksville either. St Mary's county has no emissions checks, Calvert does. Your wife can go to DC, Waldorf or Annapolis. Nice mix down here and everyone gets along. MRI is over in Charles County about 35 minutes from where I am. Finding folks to work on cars is a bit more challenging but after 20 years I've sourced some really good folks.

Seems Maryland taxes are quite a bit more than Delaware.
Anyone know about Bear and Wyoming, Delaware?
