Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Johns Hopkins is a private research university with a total student enrollment of roughly 19,000 individuals. Ranked No. 1 by the National Science Foundation in total science, medical and engineering research and development for 31 consecutive years, Johns Hopkins' research activity is the very reason so many choose to rent apartments in the region. However, the surrounding Baltimore area can also provide plenty of recreational opportunities.
Apartment renters in the JHU area with a penchant for art and culture should check out the American Visionary Art Museum. This one of a kind venue specializes in artwork from artists who were not formally trained as such - an example being a carving made by a mental patient from a tree felled by lightning.
Afterward, visit the sad history of the American Brewery Building. A remnant of better times, this pre-prohibition era building used to be a hub for Baltimore's great beer-making industry. Apartment renters who visit now will learn the unfortunate truth - it's become just another building housing JHU area social services.
For an eerie end to an interesting day, finish off the fun with a trip to the Green Mountain Cemetery. This old burying ground is home to many of Baltimore's prominent dearly departed, and is a slice of history just waiting to be explored.
