I have lived here for 23 years. It’s a wonderful community. It’s a great place to live because it’s near the airport and it’s not too far from the Baltimore. It’s a safe neighborhood. There is always a friendly neighbor walking their dog. People are nice and friendly in Linthicum. Lots of children and older people love in this community. There is a community pool to join and it has everything, a food place, tennis courts, basketball court, volleyball court, soccer/lacrosse field, baby pool, two big pools, diving board, water slide. It also has pavilions to reserve for parties and Plenty of lounge chairs. There’s also a play ground. The community pool also offers swimming lessons, tennis lessons, swim team, tennis team. Next door to the pool is a sports complex. That offers soccer, baseball, lacrosse, football, T-ball , softball for all ages. Next to that is a horse farm where they have horse back riding training and horse riding competitions.

I love it! It’s soooo little that nobody actually knows what city this is or where it’s located. But I’ve lived here since I started middle school and so far the most calmest city to live in. I have to say that majority of elder people live in this area and they are just so polite and welcoming. Unfortunately it is getting crowded with it being near Glen Burnie and Lansdowne so close, but hey the more the merrier!
Its an amazing community of people. Most people grow up knowing each other and everyone has a good relationship. Just watch out because if something happens in Linthicum everyone will know!
