Crofton is a planned community in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, conveniently located just west of the state capital in Annapolis, south of Baltimore, and east-northeast of Washington, D.C. It was officially founded in the fall of 1964 and is anchored by the Crofton Country Club.

In July 2007 Crofton was named by Money magazine as one of "100 Best Places to Live" in the United States. Crofton placed 72nd out of 100 cities on the list. It was selected for its relative anonymity while still boasting many major amenities, excellent schools, and sought-after location.
