Maryland is a small, coastal mid-Atlantic state — but residents know its unique culture has a lot to offer.

Boating, watersports, and crab feasts with plenty of Old Bay seasoning are all quintessential aspects of life in Maryland. The state's biggest city, Baltimore, is home to Brewer's Hill, an important setting for beer history including the origin of National Bohemian and the current home of Guinness's only stateside brewery.

Beyond Baltimore, Maryland's biggest cities encompass Ocean City's lively Boardwalk, Frederick's historic C&O Canal, Bethesda's posh neighborhoods, and more.

If you're thinking of buying or selling in Maryland, these Maryland housing predictions and stats can help you make an informed decision.
