Quality of Life
Thanks to excellent public schools – including nine that boast the prestigious “Blue Ribbon” designation – Maryland’s Coast is a great place to raise a family. Strengthened by safe communities, affordable homes and outstanding recreational facilities, we enjoy an exceptional quality of life. Two excellent health systems serve our 53,000+ year-round residents: Atlantic General Hospital and TidalHealth. And our affordable tax structure is a big plus for retirees and business owners.
As Maryland’s only seaside community, we’re strategically located in the heart of the Delmarva Peninsula, offering ready access to major metropolitan markets – just 2.5 hours from Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Norfolk.
