The people here are very friendly and always ready to lend a helping hand. People take care of each other and pull together to meet common goals. It is a wonderful place to raise children, with easy access to a Chesapeake Bay beach, waterfront activities, local parks, public library, museums, art activities, local festivals, a Farmer's Market, good schools, and churches. We've raised 4 children here and are looking forward to sharing our wonderful town with future grandchildren!

North Beach is cute. However, over the past few years has been turned into a tourist attraction by the town council. I get that the town is trying to generate revenue, but at what expense. As a resident, there is now a traffic problem. At the peak of tourist season - a simple 2 mile trip to the grocery store can now take more than 20 minutes. Additionally, on the off-season there are way too many cops with nothing much to do other than issuing senseless traffic tickets for faulty tag lights or speeding up and down the streets practicing on how to turn on their sirens and lights (definitely a waste of government $$).
Great place to live! You can walk the boardwalk, hang out on the beach and attend many festivals each year! Great local shops!
