Known for the blue crabs and the majestic Chesapeake Bay, Maryland is the country’s wealthiest state. As of 2017, there were more than six million residents in the state, and the median household income was $80,776, barely edging out New Jersey. But people flock to the state for its crab cakes and beaches. Plus, its proximity to Washington D.C. is also an advantage, as employees in the nation’s political center purchase or rent houses in Baltimore due to the more affordable prices.
