we're about to move from VA to near Baltimore area and are wondering if you guys can suggest a nice/safe suburb to rent. preferrably somewhere close to discount stores(we're poor) like KMart/Walmart/Costco and major malls like Arundel Mills mall. it's best to be between U. of Maryland at Baltimore and city of Baltimore. we don't feel safe living in the city of Baltimore......
any apts you recommend ??
any other advice ?
thanks

anywhere in howard county is nice... but rent can be a bitch... what's your price range? I live in a really nice townhouse in elkridge, nice neighborhood, quiet, peaceful. I live 10 minutes from arundell mills mall, 10 minutes from columbia mall and 15 minutes or so from baltimore. so you would have a lot of options around here.

Are you Students? I used to live in Linthicum heights........Exit 6A off of 695........Nice apartments and the rent was cheap.........There were alot of South-West Employes that live in those apartments and they are nice and safe........Got my car broken into 2 times though.......cant get away from that though. Dont remember what the appartments are called but

Take 695 East to Exit 6A
Make a Right at the 1st light
and then make your 1st right into the apartments.

Check em out I loved them.........My Friend and I were paying 750/month for a 2 bedroom with H/W floors and anice balcony on the 3rd floor.

yup, we need to know more about you, before we can tell you where to live. What do you want to spend on rent? Where do you work/go to school?

Baltimore is NOT ghetto! Well, only parts of it are. You don't here me busting on DC do you???

Your moving FROM VA TO MD? Why in the name of hell would you want to do that?

Baltimore is the second ghettoest city in the country after Detroit.

DC is just as much MD as it is VA. None of us VA people live in DC. I see no need to defend it.

ummm...DC isn't VA!!! And Richmond IS NOT nearly as ghetto as Baltimore
Oh and I have nothing to do with Richmond either. Anything below Manassas and I'm done with VA. I dont want anything to do with those ********. OH! and you MD people, you better not say anything about Southern VA or we will start talking about Western MD.

We will be going to U of M and working in Baltimore so in-between is easier for us. we can afford a 1-bd apt. around $1000 here in Reston. I am hoping it won't be too much more than that near Baltimore. but we are definitely willing to pay a little bit more for safety and peace of mind. we don't need anymore than a 1-bd apt unless the price is not much diff. between 1-bd and 2-bd.

the 2 car break-ins sound scary.....can you elaborate ? and how would you categorize that place as safe if it was broken into twice ???

OK Elkridge is a safe place to live. thanks for the suggestion, any other advice ?

Well if thats the case..........

1st no matter where you live crooks will come and steal your stuff........just the way it is. They have cars too :D Plus my car was moddified and screamed steal the 120 dollar CD player :D

Ok look for some apartments in and around Columbia........I have several friends that have 1 BR apartments in Columbia and pay around 1k/month. Plus columbia is right smack in the middle of DC and B-more..........Look for something off of 95 near Columbia Mall.

Ellicot city is nice too. I know Joe's place was a 2 bedroom for $900/month, all utilities included. You should be fine in that area. Anywhere along the 32/29/95 area should be good for you to find a place around that or cheaper.

It's a condo. I don't remember the name offhand but I work with Joe's former roommate. If you want to go in with him you can save $500. And the main bedroom is pretty nice and has it's own bathroom. :)
