I was born in MD, and while it is my birthstate and I love it there, I'm happy I live in Arizona now.
Batilmore (pronounced locally, Balamer)has really gone to hell with the heroin problem. The Inner Harbor has nothing really there too do except eat some Maryland crab, or go to the ESPN zone. Home to the Baltimore Orioles who haven't really posted a respectable season since 1998, and the Baltimore Ravens who were really good, then turned into crap.
Annapolis is the Capitol of Maryland, not Baltimore, but there's nothing really interesting there unless you're into sailing and The Navy.
Hagerstown (my Birthplace) isn't filled with a bunch of hick, redneck, racist bastards, it's just the little towns that surround it like Sharpsburg and Clearspring are. However, once you get west of Frostburg, you're on your own amigo, even I never went that far west. There's nothing really in Hagerstown except for the Valley Mall and...well the Valley Mall. Also called "the Hub City" becuase it is at the intersection of two Interstates, I-70 and I-81, which means you'll probably go through Hagerstown at least once.
Washington D.C. is like Baltimore on a bigger scale. Security is everywhere, especially the Metro. Home to crooked politicians that will do anything to keep the country safe. Also home to a Baseball team (Washington Nationls), a football team (Redskins), a soccer team (D.C. United) a hockey team (Washington Captials) Ollie the goalie is really popular not just in DC but in all of Maryland. And DC 101, the best Radio station in Maryland.
Well too be honest I love Maryland, and while I've had my best and worst times of my life in that tiny state so far, I can never truly leave it, even if now I live 3,000 miles to the west.
I can't like it, I can't hate it, but I do love it--Maryland.
