Located just across the Chesapeake Bay from Baltimore, Queen Anne’s County offers a perfectly balanced quality of life. With the city just a short trek away, residents are able to have access to world-class urban amenities without living in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. Venturing over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is like instantly transporting into a calm and relaxing lifestyle, something residents and visitors alike simply can’t get enough of.

It could be because of this that the population in Queen Anne has increased steadily and consistently in the past thirty decades, whereas some nearby cities have seen a decline in population. However, despite the rise the county is still small in population, just about 48,500 residents, according to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Residents are able to travel over the bridge and into Baltimore or Washington, DC for employment, but overall this community is fairly self-sustainable. It’s one of those places that once you arrive you find no need to leave. According to the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, the major employers in Queen Anne’s County include Bay Bridge Marina and Yacht Club, Bayside Physical Therapy & Sports Rehabilitation, BCBG Max Azria Group, Bridges Restaurant and Centreville National Bank of Maryland.
