4 Reasons to Rent an Apartment in Waldorf

Ah, we never write about Charles County. And why not? Just listen to what the Charles County site says: “From suburban convenience to nature’s bounty, Charles County Maryland is truly the best of both worlds.”

Let’s take a look at Waldorf, Charles County’s most populous Census designated place (2010 population 67,572, U.S. Census Bureau). Here are four reasons why renting an apartment in Waldorf might be just what you’re looking for.

  • Location – Waldorf is 26 miles to center-city Washington, D.C., and 21 miles to Alexandria, so while this is a tough commute, it’s doable. If you like suburban living quite a ways away from the hassle of urban life – and don’t mind commuting if you work in the city or closer to it – Waldorf may be a good pick.

    Swingers’ delight: Waldorf renters can enjoy two golf courses, though technically both are located just outside the city’s limits. There’s Potomac Ridge to the north, and White Plains lies just south of St. Charles. (Waldorf Ford via Flickr)

  • Shopping – Yes, in Waldorf you’re not in a maelstrom of activity, but that doesn’t mean you need to run off to the city to get your creature comforts met. First and foremost, there’s the St. Charles Towne Center with anchors Macy’s, J. C. Penney and Sears; the Shops at Waldorf Center; Best Buy and several grocery stores (including a Sam’s Club).

  • Restaurants – If you like themed restaurants, you certainly have your choice in Waldorf. Let’s see. Hankering for the Southwest? There’s a Chili’s. What about sushi and Japanese steak? Sakura’s in town. Italian more your speed? Try Three Brothers Italian Restaurant. Good ol’ apple pie? How about the Silver Diner or TGI Fridays? You will not starve here; there’s plenty to eat in Waldorf.
  • Capital Clubhouse – This county-owned recreation facility offers Waldorf and surrounding-area residents plenty to do. Capital Clubhouse boasts an ice arena where you can skate, learn to, or participate in hockey leagues. It also facilitates volleyball and inline skating leagues, as well as pickup basketball, soccer and lacrosse games. Most impressively, there’s a 30-foot-tall rock wall for climbing. The athletic-minded will have a ball here.
