I have grown up in this area, and have always loved it. It’s moderately close to a metro, and major shopping centers in Annapolis. The community itself is generally friendly, especially during Farmer’s Market season.

Calvert is a nice place to grow up and raise children, but when you get to your teenage years, there isn't a whole ton to do. It gets to be kind of a sleepy place, but it is still a relively pleasant place. As of now Calvert is widely conservative, so if you are liberal, you're better off not talking about politics. We don't have some resources more urban areas have (we are just getting our first Chick-Fil-A.) Overall, its a pretty nice little place.
One thing I enjoy about Calvert county is that I feel I am in a safe environment. Also, as a student, I feel the school system is good. There is teachers who want to see you succeed and a lot of educational opportunities such as AP courses and the Career and Technology Academy.
