So what is all the fuss about Catonsville, Md for? Life is great in 21228!

Catonsville is my town and Ellie McIntire-Catonsville Realtor Extraordinaire- sure knows it well! If you are looking for a great community in Maryland or if you grew up here, you will LOVE the video of Catonsville through the year that Ellie put together!

We do have it all, right here in our little town. The neighbors are friendly, the restaurants are first class, the community is active, the schools are top notch!  The parks and trails are plentiful, offering just about any outdoor activity you can imagine.

PLUS we are less than 2.5 hours to the Ocean, You can be in the mountains of Western Maryland in about an hour and a half, 30 minutes to the Bay, and our great capital of Annapolis, less than an hour to DC (depending on traffic!), 20 minutes to Baltimore, 20 minutes to Fort Meade.   The BWI airport, a quick trip down 195, will get you anywhere you want to be... But I bet you will find enough to do right here to keep you home more than you think!

Life is Great in 21228....Really Great!!  Super job Ellie, it brought a tear to my eye and a swell of pride to my heart!


So what is all the fuss about Catonsville, Md for?

Yesterday I wrote a post that essentially was about buyers that I am working with who have relocated to the area and have decided that they want to find a home in the Historic area of Catonsville. I want to live in Historic Catonsville, but I can't find a home!  An area that is rich in history, has lower taxes than the sister County of Howard County, enjoys great schools, lots of parklands and so much more. (Do you have an hour or so? I could talk about so many other qualities too)

Year round Catonsville is the real deal. It is the best kept secret around. Not only are there some great restaurants (Another post coming soon) but there are always fun things to do. The community participation is outstanding. Residents of Catonsville look forward to certain times of the year because of the great activities and events.......and the really great thing is that most of them are FREE. 

Huge props go out to the very active Catonsville Chamber of Commerce who have their finger on the pulse in the 'ville.

See for yourself some of the great yearly activities in Catonsville and many of the reasons why I love living here.

Here are some Catonsville event posts.
