Carroll has very good public schools but that's about it. It's stuck in time and that's how it's planned. Job opportunities for professionals is basically nil. Zero. Real estate appreciation is also zero. Literally zero.
Good place for a family, good schools and great neighbors, but has a lack of things to do. The only buniess around are resturants. most are fast food chains, and shop, agian mostly big chain names.
