Exploring Accokeek Maryland

If living the suburban southern Prince George’s County experience is your goal, then look no further than Accokeek MD. Accokeek harkens back to a nostalgic place in time thought lost to a dramatically changing Prince George’s County. Here, one can still move about town without the debilitating traffic and density that has become a staple of Washington DC’s suburbs. Located conveniently off MD Route 210, locally known as Indian Head Highway, Accokeek is only 17 miles from Washington DC making it the perfect destination for the modern suburbanite seeking ease of access to the nation’s capital. Originally occupied by Piscataway Native American tribes, Accokeek Maryland is located on the banks of the Potomac River in southwest Prince George’s County. Residents of this small town enjoy a variety of water activities given its proximity to the Potomac River, the Chesapeake Bay, numerous creeks, and streams. Accokeek is serviced by a well-stocked Weis supermarket located in the town’s center. In the town center you will also find a few fast-food chains, dry cleaners, pharmacy, gas station and Dunkin’. If you’re looking for a shopping experience that offers more variety, head 8 miles down Indian Head Highway (MD 210) to Waldorf. In Waldorf, on both sides of Crain Highway (MD 3,) you will find about 5 miles of retailers to include St. Charles Mall. Here too, Walmart, BJ’s, Sam’s Club, Target, and dozens of restaurant options await. There are also several parks and protected wetlands located minutes from Accokeek proper making it a haven for wildlife and outdoor enthusiast. Families can often be found exploring Piscataway Creek Stream Valley Park, and nearby Fort Washington on the weekends. These are also great locations for avid runners seeking a respite from jaunts through busy subdivisions. Tucked and serene, Accokeek is a pleasant town perfect for anyone, especially families, looking to be ensconced in a community that truly evokes southern Prince George’s County esteem.
