I love how walkable the neighborhood is. I feel safe, generally, aside from some non-violent property crime I've read about. I love the easy access to restaurants and bars, the two public parks and other amenities like multiple dog parks and a suburban-like shopping plaza that doesn't require driving to the suburbs. Parking is also slightly easier than other similar neighborhoods (Fell's Point, Federal Hill) though public transportation on this side of town is lacking.
Canton has plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from, may it be located on what’s known as “the square” or just a few blocks away. Also all the neighbors are super friendly and always looking out to help someone around them.
Up and coming area with lots to offer. Canton has it all from restaurants/bars, to shopping, parks, and more. Not to mention the great location and easy nearby access to 95. Plus the bonus of affordability and less of a parking hassle than other nearby neighborhoods.
