What Bert Has To Say About Salisbury Metro Area

Salisbury is a quiet small town along the Wicomico River in an area known as Maryland’s Eastern Shore. It has a history as a port and transportation center serving the agricultural “Delmarva” peninsula, incorporating eastern Maryland, Delaware, and a part of Virginia. The area is pleasant with few extremes, thanks to the nearby waters of the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Cost of living is reasonable for the region. The area has become a bit of a magnet for small businesses seeking to escape higher-cost east coast cities.
