I've lived in Arnold my entire life. I grew up going to the district elementary school, then middle school, and eventually high school. It is a great school district and an even better place to raise a family. There are many local youth sports programs and places to travel for weekend trips. It is conveniently located in between two major cities (Baltimore and Washington, D.C. are both about a 50 minute drive). It is also neighbors to the state capital, Annapolis. I can't growing up anywhere else.

If I never lived here and were looking for my first house with my new family, I would still choose this neighborhood. It's home. It's quiet but full of life and full of kids who love to get together at the park and play kickball with parents grilling and talking. We have new houses being built in hopes that new families come and join the neighborhood as well! It's a really nice, quiet, friendly place to live. Great place to start a family.
I love living in Arnold. We moved here from Crofton, which was much too busy for my taste. I like that we have beach access, excellent schools, woods, and no crime. Everyone is super nice and I really don’t have any complaints.
