Hello I am moving from Indiana to Maryland, I will be working in College Park, MD at the NARA (the address that I have is 8601 Adelphi Rd, College Park, MD 20740) and I am looking to find an area that can be considered safe, affordable, and not too bad of a drive to work (Though I am sure that this is like Chicago where an 1 trip each day would be considered good). Sounds like I might be taking the train, I have heard that Bethesda, Silver Spring, or Rockville are good places to live, they also seem expensive, anyone that can provide some additional thoughts I would really appreciate the assistance.

What's your price range? if you are looking to buy a house, University Park is the nearest "nice" neighborhood (mainly UMD professors and employees). Silver Spring or Takoma Park are also worth a look at, Bethesda and Rockville are both considerably more expensive and farther away. The college Park area in general is pretty shifty so you should read up on local crime reports to see if you would deem it safe or not.

I am selling a 12 room / 4 bed / 3 bath home in hyattsville. It is about a mile from University of Maryland - Maybe 5 from NASA. You can find the listing at 7100 Bridle Path Ln, Hyattsville, MD 20782
Hyattsville has its own police force and my house is on a dead end, no thru street.

Hyattsville is a great city / right next to University Park. It has less taxes, better services, and housing is generally a little cheaper. Elementary school kids go to University Park Elementary. We have police, fire, zoning/code enforcement, parks and recreation and my house is within walking distance of the PG Metro. My home is right off of Adelphi Road and is probably about 10 minutes from your work.
