There is a bunch of space, water spots, and fresh air at several surrounding parks. I grew up around here it's a lot of older citizens who live here in the area. Friendly clerks at stores, gas stations any local food spots. Very nice area for kids there's a great School call Accokeek Academy where are the kids go very safe area to raise kids, to take walks. I enjoy the peace and quiet the Accokeek Maryland has to offer.
