- Suburb of Baltimore, MD
Rating 3.83 out of 5 109 reviews
Severn is a “bedroom community” meaning that most folks who live here work in or near Baltimore, Washington or Annapolis. It is close to Baltimore, but far enough to be away from most city problems. Severn is a pretty nice place to settle and raise a family.
Severn is positioned perfectly between Baltimore and Washington DC. It gives equal access to available city experiences with the space and community of living in the suburbs. Everything is in easy access within 20 min from shopping, casinos, biking trails, lakes, great nightlife and daily entertainment. Have lived here for 28 years and still love it!
I like the public high schools they offer. They have great programs like IB, PVA, CAT-North, etc. There are a few jobs here, a great Danza park, etc. Great overall!
Severn is a quiet, peaceful suburb with plenty of family activities and accommodations. Though some of the housing around here can be old, new and improved neighborhoods are expanding. Driving can be tedious around here as well. There are several dangerous and aggressive drivers. People can also be reserved, but quite friendly once you get to know them. Overall, Severn is a great, peaceful place for a family.
Severn is one of those cities that is close to everything, easy to get into Baltimore, close to college campuses, and can have some good home vibes. Being close to the mall, and close to entertainment can be helpful, however with that comes some crime issues at the mall. Though not just the Severn area, the housing market is rather expensive, making it hard for those whom are single to live alone.
Living in Severn it is good, the school systems are great. I graduate from high school and community college. Now my sister is in college after leaving high school. The area is not really nosy so you can relax and enjoy your front or backyard.
I love Severn! It is a very simple, safe place in the community with good people and a good area to grow up in.
I love the area. They are rerouting and adding lanes to the highway and new businesses and real estate opportunities are available often.
The roads are nicely paved. The traffic lights could use some help. But everything is in close distance to our house.
I've lived in Severn for about 6 years now and I've had a pretty good experience. I haven't had any problems and I it here. My neighbors are nice and my school is only 5 minutes away.
The city of Severn is a beautiful, family orientated community that has close proximity to many attractions such as Arundel Mills.
I like living in Severn. Housing prices are very good. It is a little too rural as far as night clubs etc. night life. But DC and Baltimore are just 20 minutes away. Also... there is Maryland Live Casino less than 6 miles away.
We're super close to so many amenities. It's nice and quiet. Feels like a nice, little town with bigger attractions than most. I'm glad we moved here.
I've lived here my entire life and I've visited other states/cities but nothing beats Severn. Very low crime, never in my neighborhood. Most people keep to themselves, still pretty friendly. Not a bad area if you want to be close enough to a city yet still have enough distance to enjoy the peacefulness. Not overly populated, not too much littering. Really just an overall good and mostly quiet place to live.
Severn is a nice and quiet place to live. It’s a nice place to raise a family. It’s affordable and very diverse because it’s close to Fort Meade. Also it’s not to far from the Arundel Mills mall for night life. The schools are fairly nice in the area. But they do have access to different school because of the neighborhood. For example my little brothers go to two great school. Chesapeake Science academy and Monarch Elementary. The community is so helpful.
Severn is really diverse. It has many different places you can go to eat and have fun family time. The traffic is really bad in the morning and late in the evening though. It's really close to the casino and arundel mills mall. Although, it is very live and fun, it's not so safe. I want it to be more safe. Stuff that we can do as a community. I want it to be less crime in that area.
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!
