Residents who settle into one of the Hickory Ridge apartments for rent will be afforded uninterrupted domesticity as they make their home in the beautiful suburban town of Columbia, Md. While Columbia is alive with energy with its bustling center of commerce and beautiful side roads, it also maintains a rural simplicity characterized by the large spreads of woods and crystalline bodies of water that dot the community.
Come springtime, you and the family will have ample opportunity to get some fresh air and stretch your legs as you enjoy the blooming flowers and seasonable weather. For an afternoon of relaxation, you can head to Wilde Lake Park where you can work on your tan and skip rocks with the little ones as you enjoy the splendid, natural view. If you want to play a game of catch or let the kids play, there's also Hawthorn Park only a short walk away from the apartments for rent in Hickory Ridge. For some grownup fun, you and your new neighbors can hit the links at Hobbit's Glen Golf Course, and after your round you can all get a round at the club's five-star bar and restaurant.
Your children will thrive intellectually and socially as they attend one of the highly-rated schools in Columbia. Both Swansfield Elementary School and Clemens Crossing Elementary School - the town's public institutions - are staffed with highly-trained teachers and administrators. If you want your kids to attend a private school, they can always go to the Bright Stars Learning Academy on Cedar Lane, or if you are of the Christian persuasion and would like your faith in the curriculum of your children, there's also the Atholton Adventist School in close proximity to the apartments in Hickory Ridge.
At the center of the community is a bustling mall where you'll find an array of great clothing stores that you and your kids will surely find appealing. Some of the vendors include L.L. Bean, H&M, Forever 21 and Abercrombie among many others. While you're there, you can grab a bite to eat at one of the mall's restaurants or catch a flick at the local AMC Theater.
The only challenge about going out to eat that residents of the Hickory Ridge apartments will face is picking one spot among the wide selection of restaurants to choose from. Just a short drive away is Rita's a delicious Mexican eatery, while the downtown area is packed with great places like the Melting Pot, Pizza Boli's and The Cheesecake Factory.
