Arnold, Maryland (21012)
If you're looking for a laid-back community, with no industry or heavy commercialism, you'll find it located between the Magothy and Severn Rivers. Arnold is a "bedroom community" to Annapolis, located about a half-hour southeast of Baltimore.
Arnold is home to Anne Arundel Community College, named one of the Top Digital Community Colleges for 2007 by the Center for Digital Education and the American Association of Community Colleges.
You'll also find Bay Hills Golf Course in Arnold, a semi-private club that non-members can play with certain restrictions. The 5,705 yard course features zoysia grass fairways and bent grass greens, and you'll need to bring your precision game to find a flat lie.
Arnold schools are highly rated, with some students attending Broadneck High School and others attending Severna Park High School.
Home prices run from the $200,000's for a condo and over 3 million dollars for some waterfront properties. It's safe to say, there's probably an Arnold community in your price range!
