Why Choose Dorchester?
"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."
"Being in a central location really helps us and the access to the water, waterways and the bay for recreation is a big asset to living in Dorchester."
"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."
"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."
"Dorchester is not only a beautiful scenic county with abundant wildlife and outdoor recreation, but the people are friendly and our relaxed lifestyle offers a great place to do business and raise a family."
"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 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."
"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."
