  • My dad lived there when he was younger.

    I do know that the area he lived in was a lot of farmland. Baltimore is more of a bigger city and has a large homeless population.

    Thats about all I know about it. sorry.

  • Baltimore is totally different from Aberdeen. Aberdeen has the flavor of a small town. Bel Air (about 20 minutes away) has lots of housing and is more upscale. Havre de Grace (15 minutes away) has a good-sized and newer housing development. But for shopping, you'll probably head toward Baltimore (White Marsh) or Bel Air. Edgewood is another place to consider for housing. Aberdeen is pretty much central to several big cities besides Baltimore- There's Dover, Philadelphia, Lancaster. D.C. , Arlington, Harrisburg. Aberdeen is about 2 hours from the ocean, 3 hours from Ocean City, Md. Hershey Park is a reasonable drive away. Colonial Williamsburg.

  • and D.C. (Washington, D.C.) has many many places worth visiting, of course. Make the most of your time in the area. You can take the train down to DC. You can also visit New York City- there are buses and trains to there.
