Getting Away from it All
As an unincorporated community, Perry Hall, Maryland values its own independence as well as the independence and privacy of its apartment renters. This is a great place to move to if you're hoping to get away from it all. Though it's not far from the busy city of Baltimore, giving renters easy access to the city for work or play, Perry Hall is pressed up against the open spaces and farmland of rural Maryland. Around 30,000 people chose to make their homes in this town. Renters who move here will have plenty of people to get to know but won't have to feel like they're struggling to stay afloat in an endless crowd.
For a quiet day of fun, head down to the Chesapeake Bay to play on the shore and hike along the beach and dig up something delicious for dinner (whether with your own hands out of the sand or just at a local seafood restaurant). For a more action-packed day, head into Baltimore to cheer on the Orioles or catch a live comedy show.
Searching for a Good Deal
The quiet, safe streets of Perry Hall are a great place to live. Unfortunately, everybody knows it and it can be difficult to find an affordable place in town. Renters can bide their time and wait for a good deal to come along or shack up with a couple of roommates to cut down on the cost of living. It is possible to find reasonably priced apartments in town but it may take a little searching around.
A Day at the Bay
Your new apartment lies just a few minutes from the northernmost portion of the Chesapeake Bay. This far north, the brackish water ecosystem is home to a wide variety of fish and birds. Nature lovers can explore the beauty of this part of the state at a few different parks including the nearby Gunpowder Falls State Park. This park has over 100 miles worth of hiking trails spread out over its 18,000 acres. Water-sport enthusiasts can canoe or kayak down the Gunpowder River and out into the bay to explore the marshlands. Fishing, crabbing and digging for clams are also popular pastimes in the area, just make sure to check with the rangers to find out what's in season.
Cheering for the Home Team
If you love sports, Perry Hall is a great place to call home. This town is just a short drive from Baltimore, which is the home of a number of sports teams, including the Orioles in baseball and the Ravens in football. Though it's easy to cheer on either of these (or any of Maryland's other teams) from the comfort of your neighbor's couch or the local sports bar, heading into Baltimore to catch a live game is no big thing. The city even has a club especially for people who want to connect over their love of sports, so if that sounds like you, be sure to join to meet some like-minded people. Athletes who'd like to get in on the action can also get together down at one of the local sports fields to play a friendly game of softball before hitting up the local pizzeria for dinner.
Out and About
Most nights here are on the quiet side. While Perry Hall does have its fair share of restaurants and bars, renters who are looking for a little more city life will need to head into Baltimore every once in a while. Baltimore is known for its theaters, comedy clubs, and live music venues. With so much going on, you won't have any trouble finding something fun to do every day of the week. It’s also the perfect place to spend a day, whether at a sports game, museum, or matinee. After experiencing a little wild city life, there's nothing better than returning home to your quiet town to rest up for the next fun-filled day.
Fun with Neighbors
In a place like this, apartment renters will find it easy to have fun with the neighbors. There's even an official town committee devoted to creating fun-filled events and celebrations. Newcomers should be sure to pick up a copy of the town's newsletter or the local paper because there's something different going on all the time. From parades and fairs to performances and festivals, Perry Hall has something for everyone to enjoy.
