“Tax breaks”
Viki Lastrina Beach lover
“We left the DC metro area after nine years to return to my wife's home state. Our main reason was to improve the quality of life for our young kids as they grow up. I could not imagine how overwhelmingly happy we could be with our move. We left a place on a map and moved to a community. We love the people, the beach, the state parks, the thriving restaurant scene... There isn't enough room on this page to cover the bases. We're close enough to DC/Baltimore/Philly but far enough from the craziness. Without a doubt, we cannot imagine a better place to be.”
