If you aren’t familiar with Waldorf, it’s an unincorporated community of about 70,000 residents in Southern Maryland just 23 miles from Washington, D.C. Charles County, where Waldorf is located, was named one of the Top 100 Places to Live by CNN Money in 2012 because of its history, 4,000 acres of open space, many miles of shoreline, its parks, and its close proximity to the nation’s capital.
