OK first of all just because MD is diverse doesnt mean that everyone is trying to be ghetto like everyone one is saying infact most people who live in maryland are refined to there counties specific ways for example PG county is the ghetto of maryland and us from montgomery county are ashamed to be so close in proximity to them,each county is divided unless its PG or the other un-popular counties in maryland like the loser from hardford county....seriously no one cares about hardford county so they are allowed to have no shirt on when they are at a resturante and love corn (weird), Maryland is one of the best states to live in if you are in the right county for example montgomery county which is now number 1 in the ratings is very diverse and can also be a little racist and the people will get scared if they see a DC tag "rolling" up where bethesda and potomac are ( these are infact THE richest cities in the country..not greenwhich like everyone thinks but we love greenwhich) and where ppl from gaithersburg and germantown look up to them certain places are excepted by p-town ppl like wood-clife which is full of big homes and "The kentlands" where some of the areas news anchors live, montgomery county depending on where you are who your friends are and how you were rasied can actually be the spitting image of greenwhich a preppy county though instead of a preppy city for instance all that stuff about G-town not true infact those ppl are probally from criminal hood a place that should not be paid attention to because in maryland after P-town and betheda and chevey chase germantown is one of the most sought after places to live ....Maryland is not ghetto most of the ppl that live here are upper middle class or just plain middle class and of cousre where p-town, bethesda, chevy- chase and some parts of germantown are the upper class, but like i said before it can be really divided for example a school might be half rich and half poor dividing them like half the parking lot is full of mercedes and bmw's ( not only kids from p-town are rich) and one of old cadilcs and iron rusty cars and not all of it is just black and white for example i have a freind who is black and she is uber preppy lives in wood-clife and has a bmw knows almost everyone in p-town and drives down to georgetown to go shopping like most preps which is like all of montogery counties population like to do ....maryland is truly a wonderful place were you have to set your self up for a fantastic future and dc is a "mad" place to go shopping and even though there is a slight fued between real preps and fake preps in almost every coutny where there is an A&F and a J.Crew well it shows maryland is turly a splended place to live just with extremes the extreme wealthy that go to new york almost every weekend and know ppl in greenwhich and are just toalty rich and most likely preppy the middle class rockers who make fun of the fake preps thinking there real preps and the middle class ghetto kids who cant stand that black girl that acts white and the poor who walk the streets .maryland is truly a place where you can find yourself.

The state with the biggest identity crisis in America. Parts of it like DC and Baltimore are extremely ghetto, with two of the top 5 murder rates in the country. Balto is the heroine capital of the world. Suburbs like Potomac are Bethesda are among the richest and most well educated in the country, and populated by lawyers and doctors with preppy rich children who drive Benz's. To the far west, you have the type of hicks that live in West Virginia up in the Appalachian mountains. To the south and the east you have the kind of hicks you might find in Mississippi. In Ocean City you have retired people who decided to go live on the beach. Around the bay area, you have a lot of fisherman. Maryland may be mixed up, but the crabs are damn good.
Q: What do you get when you mix a drug dealer, a mass murderer, a nascar driver and a fisherman?

I'm from Maryland. We're not from the South, nor do we have an accent. We're also not New England, we're the Mid Atlantic. It's soda, not pop. It's a sub, not a hoagie. It's the beach not the shore and we drink water not "Wooder". It's acceptable to say "where y'all goin?" in short of "where are you going?" It's pizza not pie. It's DC not Washington. We know what bad traffic really looks like, how to use a traffic circle, and how to pump our own gas. We know what and where the Naval Academy is. It's not unusual to eat at a resturant with no shirts, no shoes, and your boat parked out front. We love crabs, corn, and beer. There is no place like it.
Harford county rocks!

A little bit of everywhere else, plus an ass ton of Old Bay seasoning.
Maryland is the only place where you can purchase Old Bay flavored potato chips.

America in minature. There is basically nothing in america that won't also be found in maryland. we have the rich and the poor, farmland, beaches, cities, oceans, and bays, republicans and democrats, anything you name it. We have the orioles and the ravens who kick butt most of the time. Baltimore, which might as well be the capital, is the stronghold of maryland. in baltimore you will notice an accent that is different from the rest of the people in maryland cause yes we do say stuff like wooder instead of water. o yea, and if you live in maryland and don't eat the famous crabs, you are considered to be weird. in short, maryland is the best state to live in if you want to experience america.
person 1: i want to live in one place but still explore all of america
person 2: o just move to maryland then.

maryland is the illest state

Where the crabs are damn good, where the "Hood" is in a suburb, where one of the richest counties is 20 minutes away from D.C., where D.C. is D dot C dot, where the UMD Terrapins will smash anybody, where there is a tree every two feet and where you can be shot(B-more) 30 minutes away from a bougie neighborhood.
Mo County and B-Ville STAND UP!!

Seventh state admitted to Union. Population, ~5.5 million. Has one of the country's largest metro areas (Baltimore-Washington corridor), one of the larger public universities in the country (UMD), and once proud sports franchises (Orioles). Has a dual identity, as it's both a Mid-Atlantic state and a Southern state, because it's south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
