Looking for some help. Looking at 3 homes, two in Laurel and one in Beltsville. 1st one in Laurel is close to Brooklyn Bridge Rd and 95. Second one is in Russett in Laurel. The one in Beltsville is near Calverton park, close to 95 as well. Help on if these areas are a good place to move and your thoughts you would helpful! I'm relocating from PA so I have very limited knowledge of this area. Thanks!

If you want to stay close to I-95 and the train stations, check out North Laurel which is located in Howard county. Schools are very good and the crime rates are low.
Russett, Laurel is in Anne Arundel county and Beltsville is in Prince Georges county.

If I had to choose between 3 equivalent homes in each location, I would choose the Brooklyn Bridge Rd location first. The other two would be a tie for second choice. I just think the first location is a little nicer. However, the other two aren't bad either. I liked Beltsville when I lived there. I was in the Calverton area. We often had to go to Laurel for everything though. My kids went to Calverton Elementary. It was an okay school. I do not know about how schools compare in the other two locations, but isn't Russet in Anne Arundel County? That might make it a better choice if that is important to you.

It is Brooklyn Bridge. Montgomery Street in Historic Laurel turns into Brooklyn Bridge and then Riding Stable Road.

I can tell you a lot about those areas, but you would have to give me more information as to what you want. What are you looking for, what kind of lifestyle do you want, and where are you commuting to for work? I would say off the bat that the Calverton area in Beltsville as a whole kind of sucks, although there a couple decent neighborhoods, so it depends. Russett is a good residential area in Anne Arundel county that I lived in for a while, and it is nice to reach the eastern parts of DC, but it is far from central and western DC. It's a quick trip up to Baltimore for there, too, and the Arundel Mills mall is close.
