I like Emmitsburg because of the amount of land we have, it is quiet but have very nice neighbors here. The grocery store is only 5 minutes away and have great restaurants nearby. The people in this town are kind and respectful.
After going to school in Emmitsburg for 4 years, I decided to move into town in order to pursue my MBA. The historic town is great if you want to live somewhere with restaurants, etc. in walking distance, although nightlife is pretty slim ( there are 2 bars, but Frederick and Gettysburg are only 20 minute drives and offer many options). It is also beautiful here and I always enjoy my commute through the mountains to and from work.
The main street in town has a lot of potential, however there are only two restaurants. Students from the college town could and should become entrepreneurs in the area, start small, and make businesses for the people at FEMA, the traffic leaving Liberty Mountain Ski Resort, and for the students and faculty at Mount St. Mary's University.
