Annapolis is a suburb town with a wide variety of people and economic levels. Wealth tends to be in concentrated, mostly white people, thus affecting the distribution of school resources to their public schools. Most of the culture that I have been exposed to is related to the water, as we live near the bay and Annapolis is the sailing capital of the world. I would say this is a very friendly family place. My neighbors are some of my closest friends. I have never once felt unsafe. And it is very beautiful!

Lovely little town with charming coffee shops, excellent greenery, and frankly quaint atmosphere. Would highly recommend it for the schools and the quiet lifestyle found there!
Annapolis is great in many ways. As the capital of Maryland, it attracts tourists to it's historical spots and the great views of the water. It could approve in some ways. There is some crime in the area. That could always use improvement. Parking downtown can be a hassle, which can cause some traffic back up. But overall, I would describe Annapolis as a family-friendly area with some great attractions. There are many great restaurants, too. It can be pricy, as Annapolis is known be a somewhat wealthy area. It generally consists of people who have somewhat established their career. It's not a place recent graduates would usually move to right away.
