Large sprawling suburb of Washington DC. Noted as the most affluent predominately African-American county in the nation. Often seen as two counties by most locals. The older "inner beltway" communities like Oxon Hill, Hyattsville, Suitland bordering NE and SE DC tend to be poorer and have the bulk of the crime. "Outside beltway" communities especially Upper Marlboro, Bowie, Mitchelville Woodmore and National Harbor tend to be middle class to wealthy. The flagship campus of the University of Maryland is located in College Park. FedEx Field, the home of the Washington Redskins is also located here. Because so many blacks choose to live here, many whites consider the entire county "ghetto" which it isn't.
A lot of Redskin players have mansions in PG County.
