Waldorf, Maryland Real Estate and Community Info.

Waldorf, Maryland

An unincorporated community in beautiful Charles County, Waldorf was originally named “Beantown.” A rural town with a train station, it quickly became tied to the tobacco market, and was renamed “Waldorf” in 1880. In the 1950s and 1960s, the community became renowned as a hip gambling destination. Now, though it is surrounded by farmland, Waldorf is primarily a rapidly developing bedroom community for D.C. commuters. Great shopping, solid growth, and easy access to Washington D.C. makes Waldorf, MD a great place to call home.

Shopping and Dining

Waldorf is home to the largest shopping mall in Southern Maryland, the St. Charles Towne Center Mall. Featuring nationwide favorites such as Macy’s, Kohl’s, Sears among others, the two-story shopping center provides the community of Waldorf with clothes, gifts, food, and fun. Looking for a new car? Visit the “Waldorf Motor Mile,” a strip of car dealerships situated along U.S. Route 301. Love Sushi? Visitors and residents alike can’t get enough of Kodori Japanese Restaurant.

Area residents also have access to North Point High School’s twelve tennis courts, and two community pools, North Point Indoor Pool and Thomas Stone High School Pool.
