Get Rich Quick! Opportunities Await in Maryland

By: Branden Schroeder

Who doesn't want to get rich? Well, a good start would be a move to the prosperous state of Maryland - recently voted the wealthiest state in the whole of the USA. Now, that may come as a surprise to some of you, but in case it could rub off on you, you may want to check into this diverse state.

Climate wise you can take your pick. Although Maryland is only as big as Belgium, in Europe, it has three distinct weather patterns. Happily they all have warm and sunny summers.

Choose from hot, humid (subtropical) summers and short, mild winters - this would be around Annapolis and southern and eastern greater Baltimore. The extreme west of Maryland boasts mild summers and cold snowy winters. The Piedmont region encompassing northern and western greater Baltimore has moderately cold snowy winters and hot humid summers.

Home to the largest estuary in the US (200 miles long), which is spanned by one of the longest bridges (4.3 miles from end to end), Chesapeake Bay has over 100,000 streams and rivers that drain into it, so there are lots of affordable waterfront properties out there.

Boaters of all description will never tire of the coastlines. With an ecosystem of rivers, wetlands, and grasses that is nurtured to support nearly 7,000 different species of plants, fish, shellfish and animals and 29 species of waterfowl - Maryland is surely a child's paradise. Who would ever want to go away for a vacation? Just give your kid a bucket and he or she will be busy all day collecting.

When the family is older, Maryland has an enviable choice of schools, with several religions represented including Seventh-day Adventist, Quaker, Jewish and Catholic, as well as many publicly funded charter schools.

Maryland is the proud owner of the third oldest college in the United States, St. John's College founded in 1696. In 1876, this college also funded Baltimore's world renowned John Hopkins University. There are 18 other private colleges and universities to choose from as well as state and federally funded institutions.

There is no shortage of sports to watch, either! In fact Maryland is host to two National Football League teams. The Annapolis Sports Facilities Guide lists 21 different sports that you can pursue.

For some reason sport brings hospitals to mind; Maryland has over 40 hospitals and health care facilities. In fact, with its wealth of historical and cultural background, Maryland is short on nothing. Except perhaps your family...?
