Are you a genius? Then you are probably looking to apply to top schools like Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Are you a fan of John Waters films? Then you are probably looking to live off campus in Baltimore.
Remember that movie Baby Geniuses? Well, all those babies went to John Hopkins University. The professors in the medical department challenged the baby doctor. The baby genius engineer found that his baby skills were not enough to make it in the engineering department, and the baby econ major had to grow up pretty fast to compete with his college-aged peers. It’s true, academic competition at John Hopkins is pretty tough, but I guess when you are going up against babies, it’s not that bad. The other thing that isn’t bad is all the research being done by professors that students can take part in and learn from. Besides working hard all the time, students find that the surrounding city of Baltimore is a playground of fun that they can enjoy and live in.

What's the weather like in Baltimore?
Baltimore's climate is a seasonal one, yet with its low elevation and wall of mountains to the east and west, it is less extreme than other U.S. cities of the same latitude. Summer high temperatures reach into the 80s and low 90s and winter lows dip into the 30s and 40s. Snowfall is usually rare, and light when it does occur.

During the winter, Baltimore snow-enthusiasts hit the slopes at nearby Wisp Resort for some skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and more.

What's the best bar in Baltimore?
Voted the Best Bar in (not Baltimore, but) America(!), by Esquire Magazine, The Brewer's Art has been a local Baltimore gem for ages. The upper level features a classy dining area with warm lighting, while the downstairs "dungeon" has a much grittier, down to earth vibe- offering the diverse clientele the best of both worlds! Brewer's Art brews their own extensive array of beer selections, from seasonal brews and microbrews to their acclaimed Resurrection Ale. The food is also mouth-wateringly delicious and at great prices to boot. Try the steamed mussels with roasted tomatoes, chorizo, scallions, and lobster butter sauce, or the grilled pork banh mi served with spicy carrot and daikon slaw, butter lettuce, srircaha aioli and cilantro. The rosemary garlic fries are a must-try. Not surprisingly, The Brewer's Art is a popular local joint, so be sure to get there early to snag a table and avoid the wait.
