Rock Hall (Clark Vandergrift, OTD)

Guess the Maryland spots that are finalists in a 'Nicest Places in America' list

And no, we don't mean a "nice" place to live.

The contest, done by Reader's Digest and Nextdoor, set out to find out where the "nicest" people live in America. Where are all the nice humans at?! According to their calculations - Rock Hall, MD and Oriole Park in Baltimore, MD are finalists in this wonderful contest!

The contest was crowd-sourced, and citizens were asked to nominate exceptional places "whose people exemplify ways of life the country needs more of today."

Rock Hall was named a finalist because "on Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, this town treats strangers like neighbors and neighbors like family. 'Nice' is even part of this 310-year-old town’s motto: 'Nice People Live Here.'" And Oriole Park because "by holding its powerful spotlight at the right angle, Orioles Park has gone beyond its role as America’s best ballpark to help big-hearted Baltimore honor its most important heroes."

To name Rock Hall or Oriole Park as a the champion, Reader's Digest and Nextdoor ask you to vote! Voting opened on June 21st, but will run through the summer and will be announced in Reader's Digest for their November issue.

If you are a Rock Hall or Oriole Park fan, or just love the places in general, you can cast your vote here!
