Rating 4.02 out of 5 115 reviews
Very good place, good community, safe, clean, very many good opportunities, wealthy area, a overall very outstanding county.
I have lived in this county for almost my whole life. For me personally, education and opportunities are great. My parents and friends has found many opportunities when it came to business and work.
It's a cool place to live in. It has nice neighborhoods and is very appealing. However, there is some racism but most of it is subtle. Not a huge portion of culture but there is some diversity. There's not really much to do unless you like to eat and you're a friendly person. People usually have parties, but besides that, there isn't lots of constant entertainment. If you like spending time outdoors and taking walks to places or riding bikes then there's a lot of places you can go.
It's a very nice area but its very selective because especially in the Glenelg area, most people were born here and aren't very inclusive. If you are from out of Howard county, people will not go out of their way to include you in things. This is also refered to as the "Howard County Bubble".
Very quiet and peaceful. Heard the school system is great. Has a Moderate Income Housing Program. Very diverse.
I have lived in Sykesville for over 6 years now. My school is a blue ribbon school. No crimes have ever happened where I live. The patapsco state park is right nearby.
Howard County is an excellent county to live in. It is very diverse, quite expensive, and very attractive. It is well taken care of because of hard-working landscapists, and we have one of the best first responders. We have an incredible school system & great opportunities for work.
Howard County is a great place to raise kids, however it tends to have little to do. The schools are quite good however they are overrated and tend to put too much pressure on students.
Howard County is very diverse you can see people from all sorts of different cultures and ethnicities. We have one of the best school systems in the entire country, so you can get a high-quality education at a public school. We have great and safe neighborhoods all around so the danger is never really a concern here. The people are very nice and friendly. You can always find something to do or a place to eat or shop. Whatever you desire I am sure Howard County has it. I have gotten so much out of living here and gained advantages in life most kids can only dream of. I would say this is more of a family-friendly county so if you are looking for an extravagant place to party and go out all the time, this isn't for you but besides that it is great. Money may be a concern if you live here because it is a more expensive county.
I love Howard County. It is extremely diverse whereas I can go to my local mall seven minutes from my house and hear several different languages being spoken by people from different countries. There are many immigrants who come to Howard County. Also, my area is very progressive and liberal. We also have some of the best public schools and colleges in the country. We have amazing community workers who keep our environment clean and modern. We have lots of different food places and there are lots of different things to do in my area. Lastly, Howard County has an extremely low crime rate and is very safe.
Howard County is a great place for families. The schools are some of the best in the nation, it has a very central location between Baltimore and DC, and is incredibly safe. Howard County not only has great schools, but it has a large mall, a plethora of restaurants and shops, and has Merriweather Post Pavilion where there are a lot of concerts. It's also very close to good universities such as UMBC and UMD, College Park. Howard County is a safe bubble between two major cities and an overall great place to live.
Having one of the best schools in the state, Howard county is more expensive than other counties, however, that’s one of the selling points of this county. I would not consider moving out to any other county! Even going to different counties I always notice how different the vibe is, and overall how different the people are from Howard county residents. It feels safe here, even in the relatively shadier places I still know I’m safe. The police are highly active and alert, ready to go at any moment. Overall, this is definitely the best place for a family to live in, and that’s coming from someone who is not from this country!
I moved to Howard County in 12th grade and have been there ever since. the public schools are very good and its a safe place. Its safe and therefore there are a lot of of families that come and live here. Its also a Diverse place with plenty of job opportunities.
Overall, it's a good place to live. The people are kind and there's more racial, ethnic, and religious diversity than anywhere else I've lived. The school quality can vary depending on where you're distracted, and there are often ignorant people no matter where you go. I do enjoy it as a place to live though, things are nearby and it's quite condensed so commute times are never that bad.
One of the most oppressive county governments and school boards I have ever experienced. Recent resolutions by the county council CR 112-2019 has called this minority majority county’s citizens racist. Another resolution CR 134-2019 encourages realtors to not disclose school assignments to prospective buyers. Essentially less-informed buyers are better for the county to force their wil on you. Run far, far away from Howard County!!
I love how Howard County is a diverse and welcoming neighborhood. I would love to see more younger people living in this area.
Howard County has great education and that was the reason we moved here. It has a great safety system and crime rates are pretty low. It is a pricier county than others because of its better education but it is still pretty affordable to live here.
