Wow. After the depressing (albeit accurate) writeup by rookkey2
, I feel the need to defend it a little
. Severna Park is located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland
, a little north of Annapolis
. Now, I'm from nearby Annapolis and enjoyed growing up there. The whole area is
full of polo-shirted yuppies
. And it seems that those that want to enjoy the Severn River
, but don't feel like dealing with downtown, end up in Severna Park.
The average household income in Severna Park is $138,500, over three times the national average. This makes Severna Park the richest area in the county. And this becomes apparent when you stroll through the neighborhoods, although Severna Park has managed to keep commercial businesses that look similar to any other area (there's no Sak's 5th Avenue shops lying around).
Notable guests of Severna Park include Pat Sajak and his wife, as well as Michael Jordan for a short while before he got his place in Northwest DC.
