    One of the advantages of living in the Washington Metropolitan area is there is always something for everyone to do from the tots to the seniors. In most cases transportation is make a available for those who do not or want to drive. I am proud to be a citizen of this area. The areas attraction includes Six Flags America, Kings Dominion, Atlantic City, Ocean City, Arundel Mills Mall/Casino, Parks & Recreation, Fine dining, The national Zoo, White House, The Monument and the list goes on. It is known for good food and entertainment.

    I don't think I would choose to live hear again if I had any other option. I am not saying that this neighborhood is bad or that I don't like it. I would want more privacy where the houses wouldn't be so close to each other that includes big yards. I also would like to live in place where your neighbors wouldn't be paying attention to everything you do. But I wouldn't move out of the state, I love Maryland. Another reason I wouldn't leave the state is because most of family live near me.
    It is a quant town. It is small and quiet. It feels very safe. There is a burgeoning arts district and it is very near to Mt. Rainier which is also cute.
