Dorchester County Reviews
The town is small and business here usually centered on attracted tourists. They are successful; however, they do not provide many jobs. Businesses that could provide more jobs for the general population turn toward Easton or Salisbury, bypassing Cambridge altogether.
The area I live in is a nice environment and is conveniently located by the water with multiple small secluded beaches and a handful of local restaurants. However, this would be a better town for retired individuals and doesn't offer much for the younger generation.
The weather is alright its always very hot in the summer and then we have a really cold fall. We always have very cold winter with snow and even sometimes a lot of snow. Or ice we've had our share of ice storms here that tend to be a problem. We have tornadoes and hurricanes, normally the hurricanes are more common.
