Good Evening Everyone!
After a long hiatus (Real Life was busy!) I will introduce you to the town of Patapsco, a thriving, quaint town of approx. 6,000 south east of Baltimore, Maryland. This town is just barely within the Baltimore Beltway, but is in a lightly developed quadrant of the metro area. The primary industries in the town so far are agriculture, fishing, the Marina, the local school system, some high-tech industry, and mom and pop shops. It is also within an easy commute of downtown Baltimore, other major suburban communities, Ray Lewis International Airport, the Baltimore Naval Yard, and the Baltimore Washington International Airport.
The first picture shows an overview of Patapsco, which is on a small spit of land in the estuary of the Patapsco River as it enters the Chesapeake Bay. There are only 2 main entrances into town; the southern road, and the ferry at the northern tip.
Here is the southern road into town:
Here are some pictures covering the quaint business district, along with the Patapsco Episcopalian Church, and the Marina, a very popular hangout spot for local kids without having to go into Baltimore:
And finally, here is a picture of the Francis Scott Key Bridge of the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) connecting both banks of the Patapsco River and the Baltimore harbor; heading to the right will take you to Dundalk and the Ray Lewis International Airport. Heading to the left will take you towards West Baltimore, Elkridge, Howard County, and the Baltimore Washington International Airport:
Hope you enjoyed your tour of the Town of Patapsco, stay tuned for more!
