I just received a job offer with a company in Baltimore and will be moving there soon. I am a young female professional and am looking for an apartment to rent near nightlife, restaurants, people my age, etc. Any ideas of where to look for apartments? Thanks!

Like others have said in the past and will say in the future the best place to start is always Federal Hill, Canton, and Fells point for a young professional. Its like the baltimore versions of Arlington in DC or Hoboken in NYC

WHen are you moving? Good areas where there are lots of folks your age (I'm presuming you're in your early-mid 20's??) are Federal Hill (but very little parking), Fells Point, Canton, and Patterson Park/Highlandtown. I might be buying a home and will be looking for a roommate by July/Aug if everything passes inspection. I'm a SWF, 34, and am a teacher.

Thanks for the quick responses. I'm 24. The building I will be working in is off of Ambassador Road, but I would prefer to live closer to the city.

It's a good option. Search this forum for "vernon" and check some of the recent threads for newcomers looking to move here. You'll see it compared to the usual suspect waterfront neighborhoods.

Mount Vernon is great, too. Central location, lots of good restaurants, safe, and you're not far from the other neighborhoods that people are mentioning. Basically it comes down to what you're looking for - - if you're looking for lots of nightlife options for a young professional - you'll want to live in Federal Hill, Canton, or Fells Point. Mount Vernon has bars and a nightlife scene, too, of course - but not as many as those neighborhoods and some are gay bars - - so depending on who you want to pick up they might not be as helpful (they're amazing fun, though!). Parking can be a pain with all the neighborhoods - - maybe others can chime in w/r/t parking.

Personally, I also like Butcher's Hill and Patterson Park area. Both are close to Canton/Fells and they might be a tad cheaper. Proximity to Patterson Park is a consideration if you like jog, or have a dog, or enjoy spending time outside in a park-type atmosphere.

Federal Hill is right on 295, I95, and Rt. 2 which makes it very convenient to commute. Canton it right on I95 and 895.

Mt. Vernon is in the middle of downtown so it's not the best place for getting out to the southern and western and eastern burbs, but it is convenient to 83 north for getting to the Towson and Pikesville areas.
