For foodies, Baltimore County is synonymous with steamed blue crabs. Known in scientific circles as callinectes sapidus, which translates as “beautiful swimmer that is savory,” blue crabs are found in abundance in the waters of Chesapeake Bay.
Baltimore County gives new meaning to the phrase “art smart.” The county's colleges and universities help raise the cultural bar with enriching arts classes, workshops and performances – open to the entire community.
As the county seat of Baltimore County, Towson shares close quarters with the Chesapeake Bay, where fishing for the county’s famous blue crabs remains a vital industry. And residents are only minutes from neighboring Baltimore’s arts and cultural offerings, as well as the famed Inner Harbor, Oriole Park at Camden Yards and the NFL Ravens’ Stadium.
