  4. Things we love about Baltimore County

    By Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz

    I was born, raised, live and work in Baltimore County. Here are just a few of the many things to love about our home county.

    Our schools rule, with an 89% graduation rate and seven Baltimore County public high schools ranked among the region’s 25 best by Niche, a nationally recognized website that evaluates schools and neighborhoods.

    The Ravens are at home here, at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills.

    Craft brews from Heavy Seas, Du Claw, Key and White Marsh brewing are a great way to cheer our favorite teams.

    Guinness is bringing its Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House to Baltimore County – the legendary brand’s only North America location for brewing and testing new beers.

    You can be in downtown Towson and, 10 minutes later, be driving past a thoroughbred horse farm, enjoying a round of golf, or taste-testing at a vineyard.

    Baltimore County boasts more than 200 miles of shoreline for waterfront dining, sailing, kayaking, and sunset celebrations, on shore and off.

    Thirty percent of Baltimore County’s land is preserved as parkland and open space for recreation, green space, water protection and family farms.

    Tradepoint Atlantic, one of the largest industrial redevelopments in the U.S., is bringing 10,000 jobs back to Sparrows Point.

    When a Fortune 500 company brings 400 new jobs to Baltimore County, you know we’ve got something great going on here. Thanks Stanley Black & Decker.

    There’s no place like home!
