Military members and their families tend to be commuters here. The two biggest areas to live in are Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland. Both areas have great schools. One huge difference is the commute. For Virginia the I 95 corridor is know to be a traffic headache. To get to Southern Maryland most people come down Rt 4. It can get slowed down but nothing compared to the beltway. The other big difference is that Virginia is close to anything and everything you might need. On the flip side Calvert County is rural with small towns and coastal living. You can get to most anything you need within 15-30 minutes. It all comes down to personal choice. I would definitely recommend looking around before deciding. For us we chose North Beach in Calvert County. We love being near the boardwalk and being apart of the community.

  • Family Friendly:

Price: N/A

  • Pet Friendly: Yes
  • Recommended: Yes
  • How would you describe this Area of Town: Outdoor Activities, Museum, Parks and Recreation
  • Recommendations: The schools are rated great. They are very military friendly. The lifestyle is a bit more laid back and friendly. To be honest it is also much cheaper than Northern Virginia too. We absolutely love all the beaches, parks and mom and pop restaurants. We usually drive to Annapolis for most of the big box stores. It is 30 minutes away.
