Arundel Real Estate
Anne Arundel County is known as the
“land of pleasant living.” Nearly 500,000 residents call Anne Arundel
County home. Our superior quality of life on the Chesapeake Bay, our
rich heritage, and proximity to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. make
the County a great place to live, work and raise a family.
With more than 534 miles of coastline, the County is naturally known
for boating and water sports, fishing, crabbing, water skiing,
sailing and swimming. But that’s just the beginning. For nature
lovers, there are 2 state parks, over 70 county parks, and several
nature preserves. We also have numerous greenways, including the
13-mile Baltimore and Annapolis Trail where walkers, runners,
bicyclists and equestrians pass sunny mornings and afternoons.
Birdwatchers can spot everything from geese to swans to heron,
egrets and eagles. And there’s a wide variety of recreational
programs for all ages; from dance to gymnastics to fine arts to
fitness and fun camps, not to mention wilderness challenge camps for
youth and teens.
With Ravens football and Orioles baseball home games a short drive
away, you can be sure to be part of the action when these
championship teams compete. Every four years the contenders for the
Volvo Ocean Race make an appearance in Annapolis. And on the first
Sunday in May you can participate in the annual Bay Bridge Walk,
where thousands of residents participate in a 4-mile hike across the
Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
Anne Arundel County has one of the strongest economies in the State,
ranked as one of the top counties in Maryland job growth. In 2002,
Anne Arundel County generated nearly 1,200 jobs, and our unemployment
rate is consistently below the national average. It’s no wonder that
Anne Arundel County is such a desirable place to live.
