Aberdeen is a small town in which an Army Post: Aberdeen Proving Grounds is the heart of the economy. It a family friendly town amble restaurants and shopping, but no night life. However, Baltimore is 40 minutes away, and Philadelphia is about 1 hour away for entertainment.
Review Aberdeen
Many associate Aberdeen with the location of Aberdeen Proving Ground, or as the hometown of Cal Ripken Jr. Overall, these assumptions are not wrong, as there are few noteworthy attractions within the city.
I like my neighborhood. It is conveniently located by a shopping center, a library, and route 95. The police station and fire station are a short distance away, and the local hospital is less than 10 minutes away. I have both a Wawa, and a Chick-Fil-a within 3 minutes from my house, so I am a happy camper. All in all, I like I it here.
