Communities in Waldorf, Maryland

Welcome to Waldorf

Originally known as Beantown, Waldorf was renamed in 1880 in honor of William Waldorf Astor. During its history, it’s been a tobacco market village and a gambling mecca, when gaming was legal in Charles County for a few decades. Today it is an ample residential community, helped in part of a large planned community of St. Charles to its south. Public transportation takes commuters to and from downtown Washington.

Rural Character yet Close
Waldorf, Maryland has been called “the shopping capital of southern Maryland.” It’s known for St. Charles Towne Center, with more than 130 specialty stores, dining options and entertainment. The mall draws shoppers and diners from several Maryland counties and parts of Washington, DC and northern Virginia.

The Capital Clubhouse in Waldorf offers 24-hour indoor sports, as well as an ice rink. Baseball fans will also love the accessibility of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, the independent baseball team that hails from Waldorf.

Within a short drive, you can be in Old Town Alexandria or National Harbor for shopping, dining, history and fabulous views of the Potomac River from either side! The excitement and cultural richness of Washington, DC is just also a short drive. The Charles County Fair, Maryland Dogfest and the Southern Maryland Blues Festival are only some of the unique events that make this area so popular with families
