A national survey rated the county's school system the second best in the state and in the top eight percent nationally. Preserving and enhancing the quality of education is a priority to local lawmakers and efforts to constantly improve their educational system for both public and private schools is clearly evident. Arnold, located in the Broadneck School District, offers some of the most desirable schools in the Anne Arundel County Public School System. Nearby Baltimore and Washington, DC, areas provide Arnold students with access to over 70 other colleges and universities. Two of the more prestigious universities in the world are located within 30 miles of Arnold. The first is Johns Hopkins University and Hospital in Baltimore. The second is the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Also, the main campus of Anne Arundel Community College is located in Arnold.
Annapolis is less than five miles away from Arnold and provides residents a unique, awe-inspiring playground. Annapolis offers many attractions for visitors, residents, and businesspeople alike. If one feels at home on the water, then spending the afternoon kayaking on the Chesapeake Bay or relaxing on a sailboat is a wonderful experience. For those who prefer not to stretch their sea legs, a visit to one of many museums to learn about local maritime history or to an art gallery to view famous paintings, ceramics, and silver created by artists with Maryland roots is a pleasurable alternative. No matter what you do, sooner or later you are bound to dine in one of several world famous waterfront restaurants, cracking crab or shucking oysters off the half shell.
For the sports enthusiast, the Naval Academy is a popular destination to attend football, baseball, basketball, and lacrosse events. While you are on campus a guided tour is highly recommended. If collegiate athletics are not enough to satisfy your appetite, then traveling 40 miles up the road to Baltimore is always an option. The city's two professional teams, baseball's Orioles and football's Ravens both boast recently constructed, highly modernized stadiums with all the amenities one could ask for. The stadiums are also conveniently situated in the heart of downtown Baltimore, offering world class shopping, dining, and alternative entertainment as an extension of the athletic sporting event.
With all this and more nearby, Arnold makes for an exciting place to live. Still, one does not have to travel far to enjoy the area's natural beauty. In fact, stepping outside one's front door immediately puts the Arnold resident in Mother Nature's backyard. The city's many parks combine to offer lighted tennis and basketball courts, baseball and softball diamonds, and football and soccer fields. The parks also offer suitable picnic facilities and covered pavilions for outdoor parties and barbeques.
Arnold relies heavily on its neighboring cities for their employment, recreation, dining and entertainment opportunities. Fortunately, though, Arnold's centralized location makes depending on outside resources a simple task while providing its residents with a quiet, safe place to call home.
