Maryland is located on the Atlantic coast. He is one of the thirteen founding members of the United States. It is bordered on the south by Virginia, on the west by West Virginia, on the east by Delaware and on the north by Pennsylvania.

 

In Maryland, the boundaries between cities are very difficult to see. Since time immemorial, the cities of the large metropolitan area between Washington and Baltimore are no different. Today, over seven million people live here.

It is easy to see that the line of skyscrapers does not combine with the predominantly agricultural nature of Maryland. Ever since the colonial era, this area has been ranked among the major tobacco production centers. Corn, soy, rye, potatoes and vegetables are now grown here. Another important source of income is the catch of fish and crustaceans, as Chesapeake Bay is full of crabs, molluscs and oysters. Maryland is covered with dense forests, of which over 90% is used for economic purposes.

Not only the forests, but also the seaside resorts offer great conditions for relaxation. Many residents of Maryland and other states come to the resorts around Ocean City on the Atlantic Coast, which is flooded with tourists in the summer.
