Why Crofton is the Perfect Place for Active Adults

If you don’t know much about Crofton, Maryland, now is a good time to learn – especially if you’re an active adult looking for a new community to call your own! Crofton is a booming yet charming town with plenty to offer 55+ residents – just ask our residents at The Villages at Two Rivers!

Though The Villages at Two Rivers is officially located in Odenton, Maryland, it resides just on the edge of Crofton, which is a central location in beautiful suburban Maryland. Our residents are close to some of the most exciting towns in the mid-Atlantic, but can also enjoy the added benefit of a tranquil town removed from the hustle and bustle of a big city.

When our residents long for a day in the city, they have several excellent options, just a short drive away! Read on to learn why our active adults residents love having Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. as day trip destinations.

Annapolis, MD

If you ask us, Annapolis is a top contender for one of the most charming waterfront towns in the country – and is only about 20 miles from The Villages at Two Rivers! Historic downtown Annapolis offers striking views of the water, plenty of colonial charm and a wide variety of dining and shopping options – many of which are located on the beautiful Main Street. Active adults visiting the area can stroll up and down the cobblestoned streets, or opt for various waterfront activities, including stand up paddleboarding and boat tours – or simply enjoying the beautiful views!

While historic downtown is perhaps the most popular destination in Annapolis, there are several other communities – such as Eastport and West Annapolis – that have a lot to offer as well!

Baltimore, MD

Another nearby city that’s steeped in history and has plenty of waterfront charm, there’s so much for active adults to do and see in Maryland’s capital city! If you’ve never visited Baltimore, you might want to start with a stroll around the Inner Harbor, where you can rent paddleboats on a beautiful day, grab a bite to eat, and marvel at the large ships often docked there. If it’s baseball or football season, catch an Orioles or Ravens game for an experience unlike any other!

Baltimore boasts many neighborhoods, all with their own distinctive personality and activities to try – making it a perfect destination for active adults looking to explore! Trek up Federal Hill to enjoy the view of the Inner Harbor, expand your culinary palette in Mount Vernon, or explore the eclectic shops in Hampden.

Active adults can come back to Baltimore time and time again, always finding another activity to discover in the city’s fun neighborhoods!

Washington, D.C.

Our nation’s capital has seemingly endless options for active adults looking to take a day trip from Crofton! The most obvious options include national monuments and museums, but there’s also a nearly constant stream of exciting festivals and markets to choose from as well. Residents of The Villages at Two Rivers have the option of taking the nearby New Carrollton metro station into our nation’s capital for additional convenience!

At The Villages at Two Rivers, our central location isn’t the only feature that makes our community perfect for active adults. Beautiful new construction homes from the Classic Group, NVHomes and Ryan Homes, and exciting amenities (coming soon!) are just a few features, in addition to our central location, that make The Villages at Two Rivers the ideal 55+ community in Maryland!
