My neighbors are nice and my neighborhood is quiet. Plus my neighborhood is close to shops, restaurants, fire department and police station. I love that!

Harford county is a great place to live if you're looking for diversity. There is everything from farms to suburbs, jammed between two major cities (Baltimore and Philadelphia). Aberdeen and Bel Air are the best places to live/visit. Both have tons of ethnic/cultural diversity compared to most of Maryland. The people in both towns are very kind. Aberdeen is less dense, if that suits your style. The rivers and our portion of the bay are big draws, in case you like fishing or hiking trails. Aberdeen has a minor league team with cheap tickets, which is my favorite part of the town (and the tickets aren't cheap because they're bad). Good place.
I've lived here my entire life so far and I love it! I am happy that Aberdeen is starting to upgrade with more shopping, better roads, etc. Cost of living in this area has went up but, it hasn't been too bad.
