Red Cedar Real Estate presents a spotlight on Maryland's State Capital, Annapolis. The varied landscape and economic opportunity of Anne Arundel County exemplifies what makes Maryland so unique. From vast skies that stretch over working farms to the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, the county abounds in natural richness that has provided for its residents since the first European settlers arrived in 1649. Centrally located between Baltimore and Washington DC, and home to picturesque state capital, Annapolis, the county continues to attract business and new residents because of the quality of life found within its diverse communities, numerous attractions, educational and employment opportunities, and various amenities. With more than 543 miles of coastline, Anne Arundel County is known for boating, fishing, crabbing, and water sports such as cool-looking stand up paddle-boarding (SUP. I dunno, sup with you? Sorry…) If you prefer a drier variety of the outdoors, there are two State parks, four regional parks, over 100 community parks, and several nature preserves. The county also offers numerous greenways, including the 13-mile Baltimore and Annapolis Trail. Notable landmarks include the United States Naval Academy, historic London Town and Gardens, Herrington Harbour, the Banneker-Douglas Museum, and Arundel Mills Mall.

Canton is a unique area of Baltimore that has grown tremendously in popularity in recent years, and with good reason. Specialty boutiques and fine restaurants dot the landscape, and yet, the convenience of large retail entities is still within walking distance. The neighborhood holds a variety of architecture that shows the history of Baltimore throughout its meandering cobblestone streets, as well as the shiny optimism of recent development along the water’s edge and surrounding Brewer’s Hill. You’re a mere skip away from other incredible Baltimore neighborhoods such as Fells Point and the Inner Harbor, as well as commuter routes in and out of town. Canton Waterfront Park is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon with a book and a blanket, and if you’re a dog lover, the Canton Dog Park is the place to be. Come see for yourself what’s drawing people from all walks of life to this neighborhood. The bustle and convenience of urban living blended with the serenity of the waterfront, and homes to suit every taste and style. Come see, and be charmed.
