 Pros: I grew up outside of Cumberland, MD. It was the big town we went to go to the mall and hang out at the bowling alley and pool hall. It is close to skiing, lakes, rivers, hiking and camping. I love when I come home from New England and people wave and talk with that charming twang.

Cons: Yes, it is not a booming economic area of growth right now, but development is trying to come into the area. Some residents are resisting the change.


There are good schools and universities in the county. I went to one of them. Housing is dirt cheap and is being revamped. There is a new hospital being built as well.

If you are looking for a moderate pace of life, Cumberland is for you.
