I love Annapolis! Annapolis is a great city. I personally call this place home. Furthermore, Annapolis has charm and history! We are known for our tasty, fresh crabs. Historic Annapolis unforgettable. All of the old historic buildings and brick roads adds to its character. We pride ourselves in our sailing!
What I would love to see change in Annapolis is a heavier police presence. Annapolis is a great melting pot for people who come from all different backgrounds and walks of life. The only issue is that there are many projects in Annapolis. I personally love Annapolis for its diversity, but often times projects are associated with a greater susceptibility to crime. I enjoy being in Annapolis, but hanging out in Annapolis and being a female means I am a target for crime. In conclusion, I would like to see more police and security in Annapolis to keep its beautiful and unforgettable charm.
Review Annapolis
Annapolis is too congested. There are too many people which makes traffic horrible. I have heard the schools are great quality. Housing is overpriced! There are many job opportunities. Everything in general is overpriced. Downtown Annapolis is nice but again is overpriced for what it is. The people in Annapolis are very snobby which is funny since most aren't wealthy. Although, there are several expensive private schools located in the Annapolis area.
I love living in Annapolis. It is interesting learning about the history. I find historic Annapolis to be quite beautiful. The food here is amazing. You can't knock Maryland crabs! It is a great place to raise a family. We enjoy all four seasons and live by the water. It has all the enjoyment of a city in that it has anything you could ever ask for, but still has a small town feel and is incredibly relaxed.
