Westminster is a rural city with many farms. It is close to Baltimore, Washington D.C., as well as Gettysburg, so there is always something close by to do. Life moves a little more slowly. The people here were raised to work hard and take care of their community as well as their families.

Westminster, Maryland, is a town full of ethnic, professional, and religious diversity. You can see many different cultures all in this one town. The town, due to all the different cultures, is not confined to one mindset that everyone follows. You can be whoever you want, and judgement is not passed on what you believe in. Westminster is a huge farm town and many of the farm families that have lived there are many generations long. These families are helpful and contribute a lot to the schools and local shops around town.

Westminster has amazing outdoor views. It has many outdoor parks and trails. These trails show us all the different wildlife that lives just in your backyard. The Hashawha park runs a camp for 6th graders that teaches them about the nature right in their backyards.

Westminster is a small city in the rural part of Maryland. In regards to politics, most Westminster residents are Republican. The majority of jobs in Carroll County are with the school system, although some people in Westminster drive closer to Baltimore to work. Although Westminster is called a city, most people in the area live outside of town.

Westminster is in the state of Maryland, close to Baltimore, Washington, and Ocean City. Due to being so close to these cities it is close to some of the most diverse places. In Baltimore you get the feel of the city and all the opportunities it brings. These opportunities bring jobs that broaden the spectrum the town does not have. Washington gives people who want political jobs the ability to live in a country town and still be a political superpower.
