Area Resources for New Residents

Moving to a new location can be a little overwhelming, especially if you don't know anyone in town. We want your transition to be as smooth as possible so you can start living life like a local!

To help you get a lay of the land, we've compiled a list of some great resources in the Glen Burnie area. All of life's necessities are covered in this blog, so read on to get settled into your new Anne Arundel County community!

Places to Eat

When you're unpacking boxes and moving furniture, the last thing on your mind is what to cook. There are some great local takeout options that will definitely ease moving fatigue! Here are just a few of our top picks for a quick bite with delivery or carry out:

  • Pizza Boli's (Severna Park)
  • Dai Kim Express (Glen Burnie)
  • Thai Paradise (Severna Park)
  • Nick's Rotisserie (Baltimore)
  • Clark Burger (Baltimore)

Or maybe after all the moving, you'd rather dine in style? A few restaurants with great atmosphere are:

  • Point Pleasant Beach Tavern
  • Ram's Head Dockside
  • Seaside Restaurant
  • Hook and Reel Cajun Seafood

And they're all right in Glen Burnie! And don't miss out on waterfront views at anyone of the great eateries in Annapolis.

Places to Shop

Once you start living in your new home, you'll probably discover you're missing a few household items. Luckily, Arundel Mills in Hanover or The Centre at Glen Burnie will have everything you need. Both have tons of shops and restaurants.

For grocery shopping, you have plenty of options (some are even walking distance from our newest townhouse community, the Towns at Parke West!). Sam's Club, Aldi and Walmart are less than a 5-minute drive away.

Places for Health Care and Emergencies

It's important to know where your family can get immediate care in an emergency. Here are just a few of our favorite options:

UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center, part of the University of Maryland Medical System, is one of the largest facilities nearby. The highly acclaimed Johns Hopkins and Mercy Medical in Baltimore are only about 20 minutes by car.

There are also urgent care centers, like Patient First. And Walgreens Pharmacy is just a few blocks from the Towns at Parke West.

Places to Have Fun

When you've got everything set up, turn to some ways to unwind and enjoy your new community.

There are several great parks nearby for families with children and pets, or those who just want to enjoy the fresh air! Queenstown Park, Severn-Danza Park, and Friendship Park are some of the closest for an afternoon stroll or some playtime.

If you want more to do just a bit further away, head North to Baltimore for a great day trip. Home to the famous Inner Harbor, Orioles Stadium or Ravens Stadium, several museums, and shopping and dining galore — there's no end of things to do!

And head South to Annapolis for even more fun! The home of the US Naval Academy is rich with history and home to several fantastic restaurants and boating excursions.

At Sturbridge Homes we want you to love every part of your new home, which means we want you to be happy in all aspects of your new community! We hope this blog gives you a good idea of what the Glen Burnie area has to offer.
