Upper Marlboro, located only 20 miles from the U.S. capital, is the perfect close-knit community to reside to when looking to escape the bustling city for a sweet taste of rural country life and still have close access to the larger surrounding cities. Making Upper Marlboro the perfect community for commuters, the MD 4 and MD 301 highways pass close by the town for easy access into Baltimore and Washington D.C. You also have a large variety of grocery shopping in Upper Marlboro as you are able to choose between Giant, Safeway, Food Lion, Shoppers and Target, but let’s get to the fun stuff, right? 

Prince George’s Equestrian Center fits in perfectly with Upper Marlboro’s more rural setting and is a favorite spot among locals.

Finally, we have Six Flags America, which is also located in Upper Marlboro, making the community every thrill seeker’s dream come true. Scream your lungs out on their top rollercoaster, Superman Ride of Steel, and then head over to Shipwreck Falls to cool off as you crash down a waterfall, but don’t worry if you get too wet there are plenty of other rides to help you dry off at over 80mph. Their park is jammed packed with games, food and other amenities as well, making sure everyone who attends Six Flags America can find something fun to do, much like in Upper Marlboro Maryland!
