"Like Living in a Dream"

Arcadia is one of the loveliest and most charming neighborhoods in Baltimore. Most of the cozy, bungalow style homes in the area were built in the mid-1920s. There are more than 450 single family homes along the tree lined streets. These cozy, typically wood, homes are set off by vintage style lampposts that seem just waiting for children to play under at twilight. Likewise, roomy front porches make great meeting places for neighbors hoping to wile away a few minutes visiting.
In fact, many of the adults visiting on these porches were once the children playing under the lampposts. In addition to growing up in the little neighborhood, they have stayed in the area, attracted by the close proximity of good schools, quaint shops and small restaurants. They also enjoy the green spaces that enhance the neighborhood’s quality of life, including several parks and playgrounds. For those wanting a little more adult entertainment, this primarily family neighborhood does sport a few quiet pub style taverns where adults can enjoy a drink or two after work. However, these are hardly nightspots and also attract families stopping in for a quick meal at the end of a long day at work and school.
