Why Choose Dorchester?
"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."
"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 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."
"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 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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"After opening the Eastern Shore Dance Academy, I have met the most amazing children and families. Our community has so much talent."
