Cockeysville provides everyone in the community with a chance to interact with each other. Whether it be at one of the many of dining places for people to gather, or at one of the several parks people can stay active and enjoy wonderful walks together, this small town has it all! I also love that my community is diverse when it comes to ethnicity and age. The diversity truly makes this place unique and happy!

I have lived here on and off for over a decade. There are gated neighborhoods with big lots and privacy and other streets completely lined with cheap apartments. Schools and restaurant variety is great. Crime in certain areas is elevated, but low relative to most other areas in the county. Some businesses have issues staying open more than a few years, many with recurring thefts due to the wide variety of clientele in the area and availability of public transit. Only a handful of bars worth going to in the evening, which vary depending on the intended age group. Bars and restaurants worth going to usually have live music on weekends and overall affordable dining. Real estate is expensive and new listings are highly sought after. Variety of elementary schools. Middle school and high school are reputable with veteran staff.
I have lived in Cockeysville my entire life. The communities are safe and the people are friendly. The school system needs a little working on but everything you need from a grocery store, fast food and a doctor is less than a 5-10 minute drive away!
