A Quiet Life on the Bay
Riverdale is an unincorporated community close to the center of Maryland, on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Though life in Riverdale is mellow most of the time, residents can connect with their neighbors and meet new friends through events organized by Anne Arundel County. Residents enjoy historical sites, beautiful parks, and some of the best seafood around. For nightlife or art and culture, folks head into Washington, D.C., which is only about an hour away.

History All Around
Riverdale has a rich history and has its share of interesting historical sites. Throughout the county, there are many well preserved buildings and sites from the early 1700s through today. History buffs can visit The Rising Sun Inn, Hancock's Resolution, and All Hallows Episcopal Church for examples of 1700s architecture. To really get your fill, check out Herrington Harbor North's Historical Village to explore an entire reconstructed village from the 1800s. There are also quite a few museums in the area where residents can go to learn more about local history and see some artifacts dating back to before colonial times. Those into history can meet some like minded friends by joining the Anne Arundel County Historical Society.
Getting Down and Dirty
While it isn't a requirement that renters who move to Riverdale enjoy seafood, the fresh fish and shellfish available year round in this town is certainly one of the perks of living here. Riverdale is located on one of the inlets of the Chesapeake Bay, giving this small town an expansive coastline. The sandy and muddy land at the edge of the bay provides a habitat for one of the state's favorite foods… clams. Renters can head out to the shore to dig for clams, catch crabs, and lobsters or cast in a line to catch some fish. If you've got a day free, chartering a boat and motoring out into deeper waters will give you an even better chance to catch striped bass, flounder, and mackerel. Whatever you have a taste for, be sure to find out what's in season so that you don't get hooked with a hefty fine.
A Day at the Park
Riverdale residents enjoy some beautiful parks and open spaces right in town. Renters can visit Beechwood Park to boat and fish in the bay or Jacobsville Recreation Area to picnic with the family or pick up a sports game with a few neighbors. Renters can also make use of the county's Parks and Recreation Department if they're hoping to play on a softball team, learn how to zumba (or figure out what zumbaing is), or create a few ceramic sculptures to decorate the apartment with. Getting involved with a few of these activities when you first move into town is a great way to meet the neighbors and make a few new friends.
A Night Out
There isn't much in terms of nightlife or art in Riverdale but there's plenty of both in nearby Washington, D.C. Renters can drive the hour into the nation's capital to visit a museum, see a live show, eat at a fancy restaurant, or participate in some of the country's history at a political rally. After a day or evening in this busy city, there's nothing like coming home to the smell of the salty air and the quiet sound of the soft waves lapping against the shore in front of your Riverdale apartment.
