Advice requested - Frederick/Hagerstown, MD area
There is a chance I'll receive an offer for a job in Hagerstown. I just want to get some opinions from the locals about Frederick and the surrounding areas. Offer or no, I'd like to get as much information ahead of time.
They flew me up last weekend to check out the area. Unfortunately it was raining so I couldn't check out too much. I did driving tours of Hagerstown and Frederick. Not impressed with Hagerstown at all. Frederick was much better but still not outstanding. Again, it was a rainy winter day which makes anything seem dreary.
Some key considerations are:
1. affordable single family housing, within ~45 minute commuting distance to Hagerstown and the Baltimore-Washington areas.
2. commutable to major universities for wife to finish grad school.
3. currently living in Atlanta. I don't want to move to a boring area.
