Living in Phoenix, MD

If you've ever seen the 1972 film, "Pink Flamingos," you already have an idea of what Phoenix, Maryland, has to offer. The movie was largely shot during weekends in the Baltimore suburb, but this upscale neighborhood has much more to offer than a few cult-movie memories. Nestled against Big Gunpowder Falls and laying claim to historical markers, sports clubs, and quiet streets, there's very little left to desire for those living in Phoenix.

Things to Do in Phoenix

Those who enjoy hitting the greens will have two options to choose from in and around Phoenix, Maryland, so if one golf course isn't "up to par," you can always just head over to the other. If you'd rather see greenery off the fairway, the Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail is where you belong. The nearly 20-mile trail is composed of crushed stone, and you'll enjoy being surrounded by nature and traveling alongside Big Gunpowder Falls.

If working up a sweat on the trail doesn't sound appealing, just head over to Gun Powder Falls Park Sweet Air area for a picnic. Since the park is within a mile of most restaurants, you won't even have to pack the picnic yourself—just order take out! The Jacksonville area of town features the most dining options, including a few pizza places, fast-food joints, and fine-dining restaurants.

If you grow tired of nature or golfing, you can head over to Eagle's Nest to see why the home, built around 1800, was put on the National Register of Historic Places back in the '70s. If you crave some time in a big city, take the 20-mile drive down to Baltimore to catch a Ravens game, visit the National Aquarium, or see the former home of Edgar Allen Poe.
