Hello, 

I am looking to move to Maryland next year and am looking for good neighborhoods for family with good schools. Thanks!

It all kinda depends on your budget, what areas you want to live, where you're working. Maryland isn't a huge state, but there are various areas. Baltimore is the biggest city city. There are the DC and Baltimore suburbs. There are places closer to the ocean (Ocean City). Places closer to Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia. Lots of selections. I don't have a family though. Have heard Montgomery County schools are the 'best', but it is a pretty big county (encompassing the DC suburbs).

Thank you for the response. I will be working at the VA in Baltimore and have family living in catonsville. I prefer a good school district since I have 2 who will still be in elementary.

Sorry, I don't really know much about that area. But looks like a lot of parks nearby. Does your family have any suggestions?  I'd just make sure the commute into work isn't so bad. That traffic into Bmore can be rough.

Yeah I heard. Thanks for the info. I've been told of Montgomery county but I am unsure if any other counties exist.

Annapolis is great, the state capital, water and the Naval Academy here.   Schools in the Broadneck area are great.  Don't do glen Burnie, Severn or Pasadena, All in Anne Arundel County.  Baltimore is about 40 minutes away.

If your still looking. Check out Howard County. The school systems are good and depending on where you live in Howard County you will be anywhere from a 20 min to 40 min drive into the city.  I live in Western Howard County for the small town life. Very close knit community and teachers are amazing. That being said there are places you can live that are more suburban and close to shops, dining, and activities. ( more enjoyable after COVID). Tons of parks no matter where you live in Howard County.

Good Luck on your search’
