I like the small community feel. There are shopping centers and neighborhoods everywhere, and people can walk to the grocery store because it is right next door. Its big enough that not everyone knows each other, but it is small enough that it feels comfortable. What I would like to see change is the drug use. The Anne Arundel County Fire Department keeps track of the amount of overdoses and deaths from Heroin. So far in 2020 there have already been 48 overdoses and 8 deaths. This is way too high for January 29th.

A nice place to live. Many restaurants and parks to pick from. About 45 minutes from DC and Baltimore, and 10 to Annapolis. Very low crime and great schooling. The mall, hospital, and major shopping centers are within a 15 minute drive. Many beautiful homes on the water. Not much diversity, the residents are primarily white.
In Edgewater you are always able to find some place to go and eat. We have a variety of restaurants including fast food, sit in restaurants, and family owned restaurants. Edgewater also is great because it is very diverse and is also just the right amount of crazy.
