What I like about Mayo is living in a rural area with easy access to the city. We're 30 minutes away from Annapolis, 45 minutes away from Baltimore or Washington DC. We have water surrounding all the communities and therefore opportunities to practice water sports, go on boat rides, enjoy the beach, eat by the water, and enjoy nature in general. You see a lot of kids playing outside, it feels safe around here.
The shopping and amenities within 5 to 10 minutes are limited. Closest grocery store is 15 minutes away. For movie theaters, bowling, etc you have to drive to Annapolis. There is only one lane each direction, and sometimes traffic can get congested or you can get behind a truck or behind someone going below the speed limit.
Great schools for elementary and older kids. My kids are younger and they go to a daycare/learning center in Annapolis. Not lots of choices around here for full time daycares and based on their ages.

There is a wide variety of housing to choose from. There are waterfront properties, larger homes, smaller homes, and everything in between. My personal preference for housing is in the neighborhood that I live in, Turkey Point Island, because of the housing variety and waterfront properties. However, many choose to live in South River Colony, larger homes that look similar to one another.
Born and raised in the area and love it here. Most of my friends are also from the area. My mother was born and raised here as well so we have deep roots here. Being so close to the water gives you many things to do. Annapolis, DC and Baltimore are close which is great. Great place to raise a family.
