Columbia MD Neighborhoods

The community-oriented culture promotes socioeconomic diversity, which is also reflected in its housing market, ranging anywhere from single-family houses and townhomes to apartments. You will find these homes in places such as; Hickory Ridge, Long Reach, Harper's Choice, Wilde Lake, Oakland Mills, Town Center, Owen Brown, Woodleigh, Thunder Hill and more

As noted in Money magazine, “individual homes don’t have mailboxes; they’re collected in groups on each cul-de-sac or block to encourage neighborly mixing3.”

Simpsonville is a popular area with medium sized homes and a multitude of apartment complexes and high-rises. It is artfully placed near the Robinson Nature Center and has easy access to the Patuxent Fwy.

If you are looking for quick access to restaurants or parks, check out Wilde Lake, Thunder Hill, or Oakland Mills. These are close to multiple park areas, including Blandair Regional Park, as Symphony Woods Park and the epicenter that is the town center.
