With Several Transit Options, New Carrollton is a Commuter’s Dream
Better yet, if you’re looking at apartments for rent in New Carrollton and you’re a commuter, you’ll be pleased to know the town has a Maryland Transit Administration MARC train stop and an Amtrak stop. So, you could conceivably commute to Baltimore, too. This may be a good solution for the double-income household, where one person works in Charm City and the other in D.C.
Moreover, New Carrollton is only about five miles from the Washington, D.C., city limits, and its east/northeast border appears to be the I-495 Capital Beltway. So, driving to the capital or to the closer Maryland suburbs isn’t out of the question, either.
For shopping, there’s the New Carrollton Shopping Center, which features Foodway Supermarket and Staples. Adjacent to that is a Value City Furniture and Forman Mills discount store. There are further stores in and around that stretch of Annapolis Road, including a Shoppers Food & Pharmacy. Some of these stores are in the city itself, while others are not. But does it matter when you can easily jump on the beltway and go wherever you want? I didn’t think so.
New Carrollton has three parks, including Vera Cope Weinbach Neighborhood Park, which features lighted outdoor tennis courts and a street hockey rink. Sitting next to Vera Cope is the New Carrollton Pool.
