Baltimore’s Western Suburbs offer an excellent proximity to downtown Baltimore and Washington D.C., and include some particularly upscale and livable cities.
Columbia is a group of ten planned-community villages. It was designed in 1967 to create a city with the feel of an intimate town. Columbia is a success story, as many of its original goals have been achieved. For instance, the city’s school system is ranked as one of the best in the state. Columbia’s 14,000 acres of outdoor life are an important part of life here. There are plenty of public spaces for horseback riding, skateboarding, swimming, and playing every sports from racquetball to mini golf. Downtown Columbia is home to the Mall in Columbia, which is one of the regions biggest shopping malls. Cultural venues are spread throughout the villages, including the Merriweather Post Pavilion of Music, and the Town Center Lakefront.
Ellicott City is widely known for its exceptional downtown historic district, antique shopping, food, and stately homes. It is consistently ranked by CNN’s Money Magazine as one of the best places to live in the United States. The town’s biggest attractions are the B&O Railroad Museum, the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, the Shrine of St. Anthony, as well as a ghost tour that gets pretty popular come Halloween. (With so many old, stunningly preserved buildings, you’d expect one or two of them to be haunted.) Ellicott’s restaurants are another draw, including the Victoria Gastro Pub.
