Annapolis is the capital of Maryland. It is also the county seat of Anne Arundel County. Here you will mostly find apartments and condos for sale, mostly two or three bedroom units. There are a few larger four bedroom units for a higher price tag. While there are many more recent developments that have been around since the 70’s, there are also places that were built closer to the turn of the 20th century that will appeal to those seeking historic charm.
Annapolis is divided into numerous smaller suburbs and communities. One of these is Arnold, found between the Magothy and Severn Rivers. It is linked to Annapolis and Severna Park by the Baltimore-Annapolis Bike Trail. The Wilmer Stone White Oak in Arnold Park will soon be dedicated as the State Tree of Maryland. Just northwest of Arnold you’ll find the delightful community of Severna Park. Robinson House, a historic home built of red sandstone, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Those who want to enjoy beachfront properties might look around Arundel on the Bay. Formerly a post village and resort area, the community now holds approximately 345 homes. It enjoys a special tax designation that allows for a portion of income taxes to be reserved for maintenance of and improvements on the shoreline. A bit west of Arnold is Crownsville, the home of two annual festivals: the Anne Arundel County Fair and the Maryland Renaissance Festival. The nice waterfront scenery of Crownsville is accompanied with easy access to the metro area via public transit.
The biggest employers in Annapolis are the Anne Arundel Medical Center and the United States Naval Academy. ARINC employs over 1,000 workers as well, but it doesn’t come close to those two. Many people are also employed at the local Home Depot. Another place that provides jobs to a lot of people living in Annapolis is Verizon Maryland.
