My overall experience with Charles County was a great experience. For i find how mostly the community cares about Education within schools. But mostly a healthy lifestyle along with making a living and buying more affordable for those to save or buy.
In addition, for those that decide to move into Charles County.

There will also be job opportunities for those depending on what you choose.
For those that may feel concerned about children getting into global problems such as bullying. This county does it's best to make sure that this area is safe with making it friendly.
Thus, will help those know a little more about Charles County and told by me ; a helpful resident of MD.

Charles County is a great area for families with children. There are many different schools that their children can attend. They provide many shopping centers, malls, etc. for residents. There is always a police officer in some neighborhoods. There is not many safe for teenagers to hangout at after school or on the weekend. The commute time for some areas are about 30 minutes depending on where you are going. There constantly building more houses, apartments and condos to bring more families into the county. Charles County is a very diverse county. There is a minimum of places for adults to go at night time due to lack of bars, restaurants, etc.
After relocating to the Charles County area, I've been very pleased with the decision to move to the area. The housing market is exceptional for families that would like to purchase homes on large acres of land. The public school system seems to be in line with my other experiences of the educational system.
