Located in Maryland, Anne Arundel County is – as you can probably guess – named after a person from the past. European settlers arrived to the area in 1649, and not long after, the land was signed over to Cecil Calvert, who was the second Lord Baltimore. In 1649, his wife, Anne Arundel, passed away, and the following year the county was named after her.
Since then, the county has grown to more than 500,000 residents. With a low crime rate, and a school rating by Greatschools.org of a 7 out of 10, it’s a great place to consider raising a family. With that, of course, is the necessity of family-friendly activities. So what are some of the best to consider doing with your family in Anne Arundel County?
