Why Choose Dorchester?
"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."
"After opening the Eastern Shore Dance Academy, I have met the most amazing children and families. Our community has so much talent."
"I would not want to be anywhere else in the world, or doing anything else than what I am doing today."
"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."
"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 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."
"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 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."
