Is College Park Right for You?
College Park Neighborhood: College Park is located northeast of DC in Maryland, and is where the University of Maryland’s main campus is located. Outside of campus, the area is typical suburban sprawl, often home to commuters due to its easy Metro access to DC and MARC train access to Baltimore. Between the UMD students and residents, the neighborhood is bustling, particularly at rush hour, and visitors should expect to feel comfortable and safe. This neighborhood is well-suited to travelers who are budget-conscious, and don’t mind a bit of travel to the area’s attractions. The University of Maryland campus and Terrapin sports are the main attraction in this neighborhood. College Park is also home to the world’s oldest continuously operating airport and its associated museum, the College Park Aviation Museum.
