Severn,
Severn is a nice small city outside of Baltimore. Quiet normal suburb that houses all sorts of families. People around town are nice and respectful. We rarely hear cases of anything bad happening. I have lived in Severn 7 years now and I cannot complain. I love it to death! Finding a job around town is very easy even without the normal qualifications. The schools are great and are a wonderful way for suburb kids to mix with other kids from different places.

Severn is a great place to live with very few drawbacks. I have heard of experiences with less than considerate neighbors but I have never personally experienced this. It is not a very populated area but certainly not rural. Overall, I would say this is a great area!
It is a great place to live mainly because of the quite neighborhoods and low amount of crime. There are a large amounts of wonderful schools in the area, both public and private, which allow families a variety of choices for their children. Severn is also conveniently close by several metropolitan areas including Baltimore and Washington DC. Plus you are only a few hours away from Philadelphia and Richmond allowing for convenient day trips. Maryland also has an incredible amount of historical for those inclined to take in US history.
