    Adelphi Reviews

    Well I actually lived in Adelphi Maryland growing up. I have always found the suburb nice, friendly, and peaceful. Growing up here and making many friends of different backgrounds was awesome! I got to learn different things about different people. All schools around this neighborhood were also decent. Adelphi is definitely a place to settle down, and raise a family.
    Review Adelphi
    Close to downtown DC but still a quiet suburb. Mixed racial and ethnic community gives a feeling of inclusivity. Proximity to I-95, I-495, Rt. 29 and BW Parkway makes for excellent commuting north or south.
    Most people around my neighborhood work in landscaping, construction, demolition etc. Since the area I live in is mostly Hispanic , men usually work in rough areas. However women usually work in cleaning houses, babysitting, or don't work at all. Specifically in my neighborhood, it's full of older people who have retired and usually stay home all day. But overall people have jobs around my area.
