My Deep Creek Experience
“What’s not to love?
Garrett County provides
something fun to do
for every season. I can
leave work and go right
out onto the slopes in
the winter or hop on
a boat in the summer.
It’s wonderful to go
to a coffee shop or
restaurant where there’s
always a friendly face. Not to mention it takes me only about 10 minutes to get
to and from the office — which beats
city traffic any day! I find there are many accessible opportunities for someone my age. There is a wonderful close-knit group of young adults that enjoy networking and providing each other mutual professional development within the community. The small-town feel provides you with the building blocks for growth and knowledge without the hustle and bustle of a corporate setup. The beautiful area makes it easy to work hard and play harder!”
