One of the most affluent counties in America, Howard County is conveniently placed between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. The citizens of Howard County are generally wealthy, although tend to choose not to speak about money at all. High schools students from HoCo, who graduate with either an excellent public education from some of the top schools in the nation rich with AP classes, tend to attend upper echelon private colleges or the University of Maryland, where they are either part of sports teams or the more exclusive sororities and fraternities.
June and May mark the beginning of the pool season in Howard County. During the months of July and August, HoCo migrates to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Hilton Head in order to "get away," and then inevitably everyone runs into each other again.
Howard County is the American Dream. The people are beautiful and it is always named amongst Sports Illustrated most active cities in America. The park and recreational systems are always brimming with athletic families. It is well known for it's lacrosse breeding ground, especially Mount Hebron Women's Lacrosse and Hero's Lacrosse.
Everyone wants to live the unpretentious, yet very comfortable HoCo lifestyle.
