Greenbelt, Maryland is one of the liveliest and most livable small towns in the U.S. It was established in 1937, one of three planned New Deal towns that were created with the purpose of providing employment and affordable housing during the Great Depression, while utilizing new and exciting ideas in town planning. Greenbelt is located just outside of Washington, D.C. in Prince George's County, Maryland.
