Baltimore is a unique city with a diverse population, rich history, and distinct charm. For a relatively small city (less than 700,000 residents), Baltimore has many different neighborhoods with their own individual character. From the older historical neighborhoods of Federal Hill and Fells Point to the artistic and hip neighborhoods such as Hampden and Mt. Vernon, Baltimore has something to offer for everyone.

LOCATION

Centrally located between Washington, D.C. (45 minutes South) and Philadelphia, PA (1 hour and 45 minutes Northeast) Baltimore is convenient to several major metropolitan areas including New York, NY (3 hours North), York, PA (1 hour North), and Atlantic City, NJ (2 hours and 30 minutes Northeast). With so much to do in the state of Maryland, most Baltimore residents donít travel too far. Baltimore is uniquely situated between the mountains of Western Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean to the East.

AFFORDABILITY

With a lower cost of living than most major cities in the U.S., Baltimore is extremely affordable. Whether you are looking to rent or buy, Baltimore offers affordable housing for all income levels. Like many cities, Baltimore experienced some decline in the 60ís, 70ís and 80ís, as residents left for the suburbs. In recent years most neighborhoods have experienced an urban renaissance as homebuyers are moving back and investors have invested many dollars in rehabilitating the cityís housing stock. However housing in prime neighborhoods can still be found at very affordable prices.

THINGS TO DO

No matter what your interests are, Baltimoreís geographical area, numerous places of interest, and diverse background make it a unique location with many different activities to offer. Whether your interests are sailing the Chesapeake Bay, skiing the mountains of Western Maryland, exploring the Inner Harbor, fishing the beaches of Assateague, strolling through the National Aquarium, or catching a ballgame at Camden Yards, Baltimore has much to offer.
