I would love to see more community activities and attendance to the activities as well. There are not a lot of things to do in Princess Anne, however there are some great local restaurants to choose from. I would also love to see more participating small businesses and shops in town because currently, there are very few. I love the historical buildings in Princess Anne. The Teackle Mansion has a very interesting story and great tours to go along with it. There are a couple great antique stores right in downtown that match the historical theme of the small town. The people are friendly, and it is a place where everyone knows your name.

Its a rural area, so there are lack of activities. I am attending college in this city. I can for sure say my college has been sub-par due to the environment. Police are always shutting down house parties, and there are no active night life in this city.
Coming from the city (Washington, DC), to a small town such as Princess Anne was a major change for me. I'm used to everything being fast pace. I'm used to the people being rude. I'm also use to the conveniency of all the stores. You know, a corner store actually being on the corner and not ten minutes away. Princess Anne is the totally opposite. The stores are a walk away and yes you do have to wait for your food but when you get it...it's so good. The produce in the grocery stores is so fresh. The people are so friendly. I was actually shocked about that because this is a diverse area (with UMES being a HBCU and all). The land is so green and the air is clean unlike the polluted smell of the city. I actually seen signs that said, "Do not liter or fine $1,000". WOW!! I think I need to get out of the city more often lol. I'm thinking about living in Princess Anne after I graduate. City girl gone rural.
