Accessible Seabrook Makes Commuting to D.C. a Breeze for Renters

U.S. Capitol

Easy does it: Seabrook’s proximity to D.C. makes for a short drive into the nation’s capital.

Seabrook, Md., is a small urban town in Prince George’s County. Actually, it’s referred to as “Lanham-Seabrook” by the U.S. Census Bureau, which in its 2006-08 American Community Survey 3-Year Estimate reported the town’s population as 20,348. As the crow flies – or perhaps more appropriately, the seagull – Seabrook is just six miles outside of the Washington, D.C., city limits.

In fact, there are several ways for those renting an apartment in Seabrook to commute to the city. Seabrook is bisected by Maryland 450, which runs right into the city, and is only a mile or so from the I-495 Capital Beltway. Without a car? You’re in luck, because Seabrook has a stop on the Maryland Transit Administration MARC train line, which runs all the way to the capital’s Union Station. A third way to commute is to travel two miles southwest to New Carrollton and take the WMATA Metrorail, which has a stop there on its Orange Line.

The Seabrook Neighborhood Recreation Center offers residents a chance to play tennis and basketball, and there are several other parks not in Seabrook that are within walking distance. Another highlight of Seabrook is Enterprise Plaza, which features an AJWright, ALDI and USA Discounters. There are plenty of other nearby shopping choices, and of course you can even take the Metrorail to reach the stores. So, if you want a convenient place to hang your hat while you commute to the big city, you may want to choose Seabrook.
