I've lived in Severna for a while, and have to say that it's a very enjoyable city in which to live. It has many beautiful neighborhoods to choose from and the town is bordered on two sides by rivers, which give it a comfortable vibe.
Getting around Severna is easiest if you have your own car since there aren't many buses or other options available. However, there are a lot of options for schools. If you have children, you'll be able to choose from numerous schools in the city. For work, you might run into a fair amount of political type jobs given how close it is to Washington.
One of the best areas in Severna are all the parks. You'll be within minutes from a park no matter where in the city you are. There aren't a lot of shops though, so if you have a lot on your shopping list or you need something specific, you might have to drive to a neighboring town.
