Hello,

Thanks for reading. Please know that I am not needing any advice on being gay, black or democrat.

I am looking to relocate to the Maryland area. I am not quite a city girl (eh em...woman, 47), but I like to be close to the amenities. I love dance culture, art exhibits. But I also love to grow my garden every year.

I would like to be no further than 1-3 hrs from salt water. I know...

I appreciate multiculturalism.

Thank you for any input!

Baltimore City, Mount Vernon neighborhood.

Mount Vernon, Baltimore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Great bars, good dance scene. Also fits your lifestyle. A friend of mine lived there last year for an internship and loved it. She shared the same oritentation as yourself.

Outside of the big cities and their suburbs you won't find many liberal-minded folks, although the Annapolis area is good multiculturally, and Annapolis proper has sort of an old-fashioned town feel despite being the capital.
I don't know about the acceptance of your being gay, as it's not something i've given thought to or tried to notice, not being so myself.
Art exhibits are quite easy to find in DC or Baltimore, and you can reach both of those cities from the western shore of the bay. In western Md or eastern shore you will probably feel isolated. Western MD puts you further from the ocean and bay too.

If you want really liberal, Montgomery is by far the most liberal. It's nothing like the rest of MD though, being made up of folks from elsewhere, so while you'll find many cultures there you'll miss out on Marylandian culture.

I unfortunately can't give you a specific place, having only lived in one town and now in PA.
Hope I helped out a bit though.

Is work a consideration? I'd say Baltimore or Rehoboth Beach.

Check out some neighborhoods in northern Baltimore City: Mount Washington, Hamilton, Lauraville, etc. You'll find a lot of liberal people, yet these areas definitely have more of a suburban feel even though they are in the city proper.

Mount Vernon probably won't have room for a garden. You might also check out Catonsville.

True but there are lots of community gardens at which you can either rent a plot or do it collectively. Also meet people.

It would be important to clarify that Rehoboth Beach is in Delaware! It does have a sizeable gay community. The town proper is very expensive, however, so that you really have to live outside the city limits.
