It's a quiet area and the metro makes it convenient to get to some places. I wish there were corner markets nearby and that the buses nearby ran a little longer into the night because it stops running at around 6:30pm. Overall, it's a nice area and not as expensive as DC.

Living in Landover was not a positive experience for me after living there for 5 years. Local employment was hard, there were not many opportunities for employment other than warehouse work. I am a college graduate with a degree in Accounting. Most of the neighborhoods are being re-built but the community of people moving in are tearing the neighbor hood back down. The crime rate was going higher so I decided to move.
While Landover especially my area of Kentland may have had a bad rep in the past it has been rather nice in the last decade. Not much nightlife or any attraction for fun activities. The mcdonalds and Popeyes are the only restaraunts really though there are many small businesses as of late. Overall Landover is an okay place I cant bring myself to leave.
