More people are visiting Maryland but they are not your average tourists. They are drivers of moving vans and the loading crews here to help people move to more business friendly states.

Or they are returning to "visit" their friends and family they left behind after moving away.

Sounds about right.

Willing to visit, but don't want to live here anymore...

And job creation is over the top and unemployment is 8.3%. Well, 24% and lost jobs outnumber created jobs, and that visitor thing is really moving van traffic hired by our milliomaires to get the h3ll out! Other than that, we're rolling in it*!
