Why Choose Dorchester?
"I enjoy working in Dorchester because there are an increasing number of millennials relocating, building lives and thriving here. There is a great deal of potential to reach your professional and personal goals, live the dream and leave your mark."
"Our Dorchester County community has an amazing mix of past and present. It’s both old fashioned rooted in traditional values, yet "up-and-coming" with an exciting revitalization underway. You can’t beat the natural beauty or historical feel of downtown Cambridge. There’s nowhere else like it. It’s a great place to put down roots and practice law."
"The people in Dorchester County are amazing and Cambridge is special because of the location. Obviously it’s gorgeous, we’re right on the water."
"I was born and raised here, and although my career initially took me to DC, I realized very soon that I belong on the Shore. My husband and I spend our free time enjoying the Chesapeake’s gifts: Boating, hunting, fishing, crabbing, and skiffing through the marshes. You won’t find a more welcoming community with as much heritage and history as Dorchester."
"I feel lucky to have grown up and experienced everything that Dorchester offers. The Chesapeake Bay never gets old and I never tire of hearing stories of the past from my dad and grandfather about working the water. I am proud to carry on their traditions using modern technology and methods and will always call Dorchester home."
"After opening the Eastern Shore Dance Academy, I have met the most amazing children and families. Our community has so much talent."
"Dorchester provides the close community feeling that small businesses thrive. Our county has so many driven people with incredible ideas and resources. Collaborating on a creative level and the friendships I’ve made makes this more than a "job" for me."
"I enjoy working in Dorchester because of the gorgeous open space public lands such as Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge provide. The sunrises and sunsets are magnificent. People here are passionate and helpful. Dorchester is also affordable, so my money goes farther."
"One of the things I love about living and working here is the amazing energy. There are a lot of great things happening simultaneously right now and I’m constantly meeting new people who are excited to be engaged and involved. It’s a great feeling to watch and be part of the progress unfolding in my hometown."
"Dorchester is home. I returned after college and dove into our family business. There is an authentic sense of community here - a general "get the job done" attitude. Combined with the natural balance of four distinct seasons, access to the Choptank River and waterways, and more seafood, farms and wildlife than you can shake a stick at, I'd say it's a pretty great place to live."
