All About

Living in Laurel, MD

A move to Laurel, a suburb of Baltimore, is a journey into a city situated on the Patuxent River but located within 20 miles of the Atlantic Ocean. Whether you're looking for Laurel apartments to be close to the city's parks and recreation centers, cultural venues or thoroughbred horse racetrack, Laurel has something for every lifestyle.

If you're new to Laurel apartments and want to discover the culture of the city, visit one of Laurel's theaters and art galleries. The Laurel Mill Playhouse is a community theater that's home to the Burtonsville Players; the Central Maryland Chorale performs choral masterworks and lighter musical fare year-round; and art lovers will relish the works at the Montpelier Arts Center and the WSSC Art Gallery.

For those who prefer the culinary arts to visual arts, take a break from cooking in your apartment kitchen to visit one of Laurel's favorite restaurants. At Pasta Plus, you can't go wrong with ordering any of the homemade pizza, pasta, gnocchi or bread. Order the ribs dry or wet at Red Hot and Blue barbecue restaurant, or try the pulled pork, coleslaw or pulled chicken nachos.

Get out of your apartments and meet other Laurel residents at some of the city's celebrated festivals. At LakeFest, enjoy a day of free family-oriented activities at the Granville Guide Park and Lakehouse. The annual Main Street Festival is an event held each May with arts and crafts, food, demonstrations and children's activities. In addition to these attractions, the Riverfest celebration features a 5k race, raffles, community groups, puppet theater and live entertainment, all along the bank of the Patuxent River in Riverfront Park each October. The 15,000-seat Laurel Park Racecourse provides excitement throughout the year with its thoroughbred horse racing and special events.
