Why Choose Dorchester?
"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."
"As someone who was raised in Dorchester – and spent my career working internationally - I wouldn’t want to live nor work anywhere else. From our beautiful landscapes and outdoor recreation to our close-knit community and proximity to major cities, Dorchester is a great place to raise a family and enjoy an Eastern Shore lifestyle."
"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."
"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."
"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 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."
"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."
"I would not want to be anywhere else in the world, or doing anything else than what I am doing today."
"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."
