It has such a hallmark small town feel. For the most part everyone is so friendly. Awesome trails to hike on one end of town and a water front promenade(boardwalk) at the other end. Up-to-date playgrounds and they largest one is handicap friendly. And the food! So great! Just about anywhere you choose to go you will not be disappointed. There's a coffee shop downtown that has such a friendly atmosphere- fire/EMS/police stop by there every chance they get and dog lovers? Yes, you can bring your friendly pooch inside. Almost every holiday there's a parade and during the warmer months almost every weekend you can probably find one of the fire houses cooking their AMAZING pitbeef! I could just go on and on about this beautiful town.

Havre de Grace is an amazing small town located on the water in Harford County. It is a diverse, accepting community with lots to do. If you're there on a Saturday in the summer, be sure to check out the farmer's market!
Havre De Grace is an amazing historic small town located about forty-five minutes outside of Baltimore, Maryland. The schools in Havre De Grace are wonderful, from pre-k-12th. It is a great place to raise a family or if you are in those golden years an excellent place to retire. Watching the sunrise or sunset while walking on the boardwalk downtown is a beautiful. The main problem is the nightlife. For kids in High School and College age it is really boring. For the young adults to do anything "fun" you have to go to Bel-Air or further.
