11 Reasons Living In Baltimore Is The Best And Everyone Should Move Here
Over the last few decades, Baltimore’s population has been decreasing year by year. However, recently it’s started to pick up again, as young professionals are finding this charming city the perfect mix of city life, history, and culture. Here are 11 reasons living in Baltimore is actually the best.
1. We're diverse.
Diversity is rich in Baltimore, having an abundance of races, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientation. We're one big melting pot, which can be hard to find in other cities across the US.
2. The ethnic festivals can't be beat.
Because of the population diversity mentioned above, Baltimore has a plethora of festivals where you can learn about different cultures. The African American Festival, Lithuanian Festival, Baltimore Caribbean Carnival, Polish Fall Festival... The list goes on and on.
3. There are plenty of green spaces to become one with nature.
The city life doesn't mean having to only look at tall buildings all day. Baltimore has quite a few parks that are perfect for a picnic, hiking, family gatherings, and more.
4. There are many hidden gems to be found.
Once I think I know all the hidden spots around Baltimore, I'm then surprised to find more. Never stop exploring and there will always be more to discover.
5. The food scene is overwhelming.
You can find any type of restaurant in the city whether you're craving soul food, Italian, Greek, Mexican, and more. Never underestimate the seafood found here because it will always blow you away.
6. The nightlife is electric.
There's something for everyone when it comes to nighttime hot spots. If you prefer dancing, head to Power Plant Live. If you enjoy bar hopping to rustic pubs, then check out Fells Point or Canton.
7. The architecture is stunning.
There's a mix of old and new when it comes to Baltimore, but there's nothing quite like the old. Spots like Mount Vernon are perfect for taking in the beauty of historic structures.
8. We have an abundance of pride.
Pride for our sports teams, pride for the city, and pride for Baltimore culture. It's hard not to feel a bit of warmth when around those who truly love their city.
9. There's an abundance of history.
All the perfectly preserved buildings, ships, memorials, and statues truly give Baltimore a bit of character. Learning about the past gives us appreciation for our surroundings and for those who lived here before us.
10. We're within driving distance to many worthwhile destinations.
If you feel the need to escape Charm City for a weekend, Baltimore is relatively close to Washington DC, Annapolis, or cross the Bay Bridge to visit all the little towns on the eastern shore.
11. Basically, we have everything here.
Baltimore gets a bad rap but residents know that the city is perfectly imperfect. We embrace the flaws and keep on living happily content.
Why are you proud to call Baltimore home?
