Maryland is one of the nation’s most robust melting pots.

A beautiful US state on the east coast, Maryland has a wealth of historic main streets, charming mountain communities in the Appalachians, and sandy Atlantic Ocean shores. For a taste of the big city, spend the day exploring downtown Baltimore. Alternatively, visit the charming main streets of Annapolis and Frederick for delicious fresh seafood, locally produced entertainment, and boutique shopping.

Outdoor enthusiasts can head to the coast to spend the day at the beach, paddle a kayak around the Chesapeake Bay, or visit parks for waterfalls and tubing. Whatever kind of experience you're looking for, Maryland is full of fantastic alternatives. Here are some of the reasons why Maryland is the best state in the US:

1. Good Schools & Smart People

"From excellent K-12 public schools, to an incredible workforce, we’re one smart state. In fact, nearly 40 percent of Marylanders hold a bachelor’s degree or higher, ranking third in the nation. And with the highest concentration of STEM professionals among the states, opportunities abound for people in science and technology."

2. Boredom doesn't stand a chance in the state

Numerous miles of coastline provide countless opportunities for water sports, whether they involve relaxing in the sun in Ocean City, sailing on the Chesapeake Bay, or canoeing through the creeks of western Maryland. And the story involves more than just water. Add in incredible opportunities for cultural exploration, a thriving beer sector, and distinctive food (ahem, blue crabs), and you have a pretty wonderful area to live—or at the very least, visit.

3. The state is a melting pot

Maryland is one of the country's most vibrant melting pots, with several of its cities ranking among the most diverse in the country. Marylanders benefit from the amazing cultural experiences and new views that a varied community offers. Additionally, minorities and women enjoy unrivaled business opportunities here.

4. Healthy Incomes and Healthy Habits

Marylanders have a solid foundation thanks to high household earnings that outpace those of all other states. This translates to more opportunities for healthy living and more chances to live a healthy lifestyle, which is simple owing to the state's 50 state parks and 18 national parks. And because of prestigious facilities like Johns Hopkins Hospital, Marylanders who require access to top-notch healthcare may get it.
