Finding an apartment to rent in Camp Springs can be slightly difficult because only about 16 percent of properties are rentals. With a 9 percent vacancy rate, however, you should be able to find what youre looking for either way. Because of its proximity to D.C., lots of people choose to live here and enjoy a quieter life. Youll want to check out the area and test out commute times before you move. The weather is fairly mild, but it can get some pretty wicked winter storms! Be prepared to brave a little snow from time to time, and youll be fine. When you start looking at apartments, get a firm idea of exactly what you want in your head. The median home cost here to buy is quite a bit higher than average, so be prepared to in turn spend some more on your rent than the national average. People consider it worth it, however, to avoid the mess of downtown D.C., but still enjoy all the perks of being so close to it.
Camp Springs life is quiet and pleasant (if you find quietpleasant, that is). Party place it isn't, so if clubbing is your thing, you may have to travel a bit to get rowdy. Don't worry though, the Capital Beltway passes right though Camp Springs and the Green Line of the Washington Metro stops right in town as well.
The town has a year-round indoor and outdoor swimming pool open to the public, and it also has a super active Senior Activity Center. Its a great place to retire once youre ready to leave D.C. proper, or to move when youre ready to raise a family and settle down.
