Hughesville is a wonderful place to live! There is very little to do in Hughesville itself, which makes it very peaceful. The upside of Hughesville is that it is rather centrally located. Prince Fridrick is 10 minutes away, Chrlotte Hall is 10 minutes away, waldorf is 25 minutes away, Virginia is 30 minutes away, Annapolis is an hour away, and the nations capital is only 50 minutes away. Hughesville is a peaceful place to come home to from any number of excelent jobs nearby.

It's a very safe area to raise children. The schools are very good and up to date. The only problems are the wild deer, and being a good distance from the closest town.
Hughesville is conveniently located to Waldorf and LaPlata, Md. I like that about hughesville because it is not in the hub of everything. It's peaceful and relaxing.
