Nice small town. The middle school is the best all round this area. It's about 15 minutes to Ocean City, Maryland.

I have lived in Willards for quite a time now and I can say one thing about it: it is incredibly boring. There is almost nothing to do and the people aren'y very friendly. We do like the privacy we have here though but that is it.
I have lived here for over 25 years straight out of Hampden for those local red necks around here that's in Baltimore.... water is not drinkable and it is rusty at $84 MONTHLY!!!! Rundown houses, no sidewalks. Even the largest employer left..Cropper Brothers. High taxes, town run by three local families, population has dropped significantly in the last ten years. Housing prices have fallen sharply while there is no economy here worth talking about. Good people leaving while welfaretrashy families moving in....I am selling to get out.... should have done this a long time ago.. Stay Away....
