Hello,
My boyfriend and I are moving back to the DC area. Where is a good place to live near a metro stop that is a halfway point between Annapolis and Metro Center in DC? We were looking at Bowie, but it's still a 10 mile drive to New Carrollton metro. Are there any places that are safe and closer to DC? What are good neighborhoods to look at?

Default Bowie to Metro

I do this drive every day...it's only 11 minutes from my front door to parking my car in New Carrollton. Bowie's also got a great commuter lot where you've got a choice of three bus routes that go directly to NC. Not much else closer that's safe -- once you're inside the beltway, it gets very sketchy.

Unfortunately many of your safer neighborhoods that are near DC and Annapolis often come with a little out of the way commute in regards to getting to a metro line. Everything is of course expensive, but usually you get really good neighbors, schools, and nice homes to live in for it.

I personally chose the commute route for 5 years and lived in Calvert County (Northern Huntingtown, MD) and loved it. I had the option of driving into DC or stopping at one of the green line stops along my way and taking Metro whenever I wished. I was also about an hour stroll up Route 4 to Route 2 to get to Annapolis.

Some people don't like it but I used the driving time with all the trees to unwind and clear my head after a stressful day at work. If it wasn't for relocating for my job I'd still be there...
