Maryland has always had a good showing in Money magazine's annual "America's Best Places to Live" list.
For example, in 2011, Maryland was represented by Montgomery Village at #40, Eldersburg at #67, and Crofton at #82. And in 2012, Maryland had a total of 5 communities make the list, with Ellicott City & Columbia at #8, Waldorf at # 20, Gaithersburg at #23, and Germantown at #24.
Not bad for a relatively small state like Maryland!
Those lists were compiled back when Money was partnered with CNN. The two outlets parted ways in 2014, but Money still publishes its list every year on its own site: Money.com
Their lists still take into account a range of factors, like job opportunities, schools, safety, economic outlook, weather, and recreation.
So how has Maryland done since? Not too bad!
Although there are a few regulars (like Columbia), the general spread of recognition gives you some impression of the overall quality of Maryland as a place to live.
The beautiful scenery, urban amenities, strong economy, and high-quality schools all make this a fantastic place to live each and every year.
