Crofton, Maryland (21114)

Welcome to Crofton, Maryland

Crofton, Maryland, is located along the Rt. 3 corridor in the middle of a triangle formed by Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Annapolis – about a half hour to each.

The “Greater Crofton Area” encompasses adjacent zip codes, including communities in Davidsonville (21035), Gambrills (21054), and Odenton (21113). You owe it to yourself to check out this area, if you’re looking for a home in the D.C.-Baltimore-Annapolis triangle.

This was a gated community when it was developed in the 1960’s but those gates are purely decorative now. Homes were built around the golf course of Crofton Country Club, and other neighborhoods have sprung up since then in the area around Walden Golf Course.

Flowering cherry trees and American flags line the main street and you’ll find organized sports, annual spring and fall crafts fairs, Christmas-tree lighting, Santa’s arrival on a fire truck, and community parades to celebrate Halloween, Armed Forces Day, and opening day of the youth baseball season.

It wasn’t a surprise to anyone who lives in this community when Crofton appeared on Money Magazine’s list of the “Top 100 Best Places to Live” in 2007 and 2011. Whether you are a young adult just starting out, a busy family, or an empty-nester, this is a community that you will enjoy calling “home”.
