About Us

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski, Jr.Located in the heart of Maryland, Baltimore County is a vibrant, diverse community that truly offers something for everyone. Home to historic neighborhoods, 21,000 equine-related acres, over 200 miles of beautiful waterfront along the tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay, and six family-owned wineries along the Piedmont Trail, and six local craft breweries – Baltimore County is waiting to be explored!

With so much to see and do, Baltimore County is truly a special place. A day can begin with shopping in one of our neighborhood downtowns and end with a beautiful dinner overlooking the waterfront or rolling hills of Hunt Valley.  Only a short drive from Baltimore City’s Inner Harbor, BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, and just an hour’s drive from Washington, D.C., Baltimore County offers accommodations, activities, shopping, and dining to fit every taste and budget.

Be sure to visit Baltimore County and get a chance to experience the hospitality and sense of community that make it so special. If you already live here, then enjoy something new! Whether it’s outdoor recreation, the arts, horse country, local wineries, or an historical reenactment – discover Baltimore County and let the memory-making experiences begin.
