The Baltimore area includes many wonderful neighborhoods. Here are 5 favorite ones that the Chesapeake Property Management and Yaffe Real Estate teams came up with.

Chesapeake Property Management's and Yaffe Team's 5 Favorite Baltimore Area Neighborhoods

1. Towson, Maryland

Kelly Hepting, Client Services Division, Chesapeake Property Management, Inc., and Mary Towle, Real Estate Partner, Yaffe Real Estate, both love Towson, Maryland.

Kelly lives in Towson, She explains,

"While I appreciate visiting all the other neighborhoods I like Towson because it is very close to all my needs.  We can drive or walk to the  mall, a variety of restaurants, gyms and yoga studios, movies, grocery stores. There are many adult and family friendly entertainment options such as Feet on the Street, farmers markets, festivals, live music and sporting events at Towson University.

My neighborhood (Southland Hills) is still relatively safe and very clean. We live in a quiet neighborhood with a great community spirit and have wonderful schools.

With Towson University so close, the students help give the community a young and active feel.

At this stage of my life, my favorite activity is to walk to Towson with my family on a Saturday morning for breakfast and visit the bookstore after."

Mary Towle lives in Cockeysville in Baltimore County. She likes that Towson is "close to everything - Baltimore county and the city activities. Good restaurants, shopping, ties to the community since it's where I grew up." 

Her favorite places to visit inTowson include the TowsonTown Center and downtown Towson for restaurants and walking.    

2. Roland Park, Maryland

Linda Yaffe says that her favorite neighborhood is Roland Park which is considered, according to Wikipedia, "the first planned suburban community in North America ... developed between 1890 and 1920..."

She says, "although I live in Lutherville-Timonium in Baltimore County, I love that Roland Park is a real neighborhood, convenient to schools, local shops (Starbucks, Eddie?s), parks and outdoor activities ? you'll find lots of walkers, bikers, recreational activities and lots of educated, interesting people. Roland Park is an easy commute to downtown Baltimore. too.

When you go there, be sure to go to Eddie?s for the best sandwiches you can imagine (try the Baltimore!). Grab a cup of coffee at Starbucks, catch a baseball game at Gilman fields, take a walk around the neighborhood. It's just a great place to be."

3. Hampden in Baltimore City, Maryland

Juli Stein, with Chesapeake Property Management, lives in Reisterstown, Maryland, very close to Owings Mills. Her favorite neighborhood is Hampden, in Baltimore. Juli says,

"Hampden has lots of great and quirky restaurants and boutiques. I just had an excellent dinner at Golden West Caf€ and delicious homemade ice cream at The Charmery.

Hampden is a great place to spend a few hours strolling around, stopping in the boutiques, purchasing Baltimore-ish gifts, and having a great meal."  

4. Harbor East in Baltimore City, Maryland

Jessica Alperstein, Real Estate Partner, Yaffe Real Estate, lives in Pikesville/Mount Washington in Baltimore County. Her favorite Baltimore neighborhood is Harbor East. She explains,

"I love the ability to walk everywhere, shops, restaurants,movies, waterfront, Inner Harbor, Aquarium, Power Plant, etc.  There is so much to do in such close proximity.  It?s one of the best benefits of city living in my opinion.

My favorite places to visit include Arhaus Furniture, Ouzo Bay Restaurant (awesome outside seating overlooking the harbor), Charleston Restaurant (a Cindy Wolfe restaurant and Baltimore staple), Under Armor, Anthropologie, Marriott Waterfront Hotel (Grille 700 has an amazing Sunday Brunch), and Haute Blow Dry Bar so you can look your best before a night on the town!"

5. Fells Point, Baltimore City, Maryland

Kristin Karukas, Yaffe Real Estate and Chesapeake Property Management, lives in Westminster in Carroll County. It's close to Baltimore and DC. Her favorite Baltimore neighborhood is Fells Point because there are so many different things to do for all!

These are her recommendations for Fells Point:

  • The Farmers Market ? a great way to spend a Saturday morning

  • Local restaurants ? Pazo (tapas), Black Olive (Greek) and Bertha?s (mussels) are some of my favorites

  • Fells Point Fun Fest ? great for food, drinks, music and people watching

  • Different bars host bands nightly and especially on weekends. I love going out with friends, grabbing a drink and listening to local bands!

  • Lots of small, locally-owned shops

  • Take the Water Taxi to the Inner Harbor if you need even more options
