When some people move to Maryland, they’re surprised to learn about a few things. Learn the following 13 items and living in the Old Line State will be a bit easier.
1. The art of picking crabs.
Once you've perfected this, you can eat crabs at a quick and delicious rate.

Although the season technically starts in early April, crabs are at their heaviest and meatiest in October and November.

10. If you order an orange crush, this is what you'll get.
Not that orange soda drink.
