The best part about living and working on the Eastern Shore of Maryland is definitely just the experience. It's a unique culture that we have here. People from Maryland are so full of pride for where they're from, especially if you're from the Eastern Shore. We love our Old Bay and our blue crabs and our Thrasher's French Fries down at the beach. And, you know, all of the foods that are unique to Maryland. We have tons of recreation, lots of water activities, tons of history and museums to explore. It's just such a unique culture. I've been able to travel all throughout the United States and different countries in the world but there is no place like the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
