Baltimore Highlands Reviews

9 reviews
All Categories
It's got decent living for a lower price. Not too far from Baltimore city or other popular areas like Ellicott City, Glen Burnie or Columbia. The only issue I have is with overcrowding and parking. The chance of your car being hit or side-swiped is very high in these neighborhoods.
Review Baltimore Highlands
This neighborhood is very family friendly but when the weather gets warm there are homicides, which makes it unsafe for children who don't know the area.
The stores are very avarage. We have 7-11, WaWa, family owned buisness/resturants, Home Depot, M&T Bank, McDonalds, Chick fil a, and other various buisnesses and stores.
