G arrett County welcomes you! Relocating a family or a business
is a big decision, and you want to make sure your new home has the quality of life, opportunities and amenities you need.
Here are just a few of the benefits Garrett County has to offer:
• An average commuting time of just 23 minutes.
• A cost-of-living index below the national average.
• A low crime rate.
• A local personal income-tax rate that’s among the lowest in the state.
• Public schools with test scores above the state average, small class sizes and a robust career and technical education curriculum.
• Two well-regarded medical centers.
Add to all that the county’s stunning natural beauty — a mountainous forest landscape dotted with charming towns. At the same time, Garrett County is only a short drive along the interstate from major metropolitan areas such as Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh.
Deep Creek Lake is a major tourist destination, and 20 percent of Garrett County’s more than 420,000 acres are set aside as state park, forest and wildlife-
