I am interested in living at the mid way point of Baltimore, MD and Crystal City, VA. I can't seem to find what that location is. I did mapquest a landmark in Baltimore and Crystal City. However, I can't seem to get anything exact. Any advice? How is 395 or 295 traffic heading towards Crystal City? I also have a school aged child and I want to have him in a good school system

Halfway would put you in MD, not NOVA, and I think that would even be PG county, not a great school system.

Yeah, I'm thinking that mid-way would be Laurel, MD. Not great schools. You could try a little bit farther, in Howard County, but that's probably not mid-way to Crystal City.

And you're going to hit nasty traffic in the morning driving from Laurel to Crystal City...

yes the halfway point is somewhere near Laurel... You could say the Laurel-Columbia-Bowie area. I'm not sure why one would care exactly the halfway point is though.

Columbia, Maryland is a popular place for couples who have one person working in DC and the other in Baltimore. Schools are good, too, if that's a concern.
