Now that it's part of the Baltimore metropolitan area and by extension the Washington - Boston megalopolis, it's become a suburban bedroom community of sorts. Still, the roots of its history are everywhere. The Dundalk Historic District is listed on the national registry and includes many buildings from the 19th and early 20th centuries. The options for renters range from the historic to the modern. With the apartment vacancy rate running at just under ten percent, apartment hunters have options. Still, looking as early as possible gives you flexibility. Make a list of properties you are interested in and go through them until you find the perfect match for your lifestyle. Dundalk is close enough to Baltimore that it's possible to commute fairly easily, using either a car or public transportation. If you are considering making this part of Maryland your home, here's a look at a few of the neighborhoods renters might be interested in.

North Point: Running parallel to the waters of Back River and along both sides of I-695, this part of town includes industrial parks and manufactured home communities mixed in with yacht clubs and equipment yards and rows of townhouses. Sparrows Point Country Club is at the south end. $$

Harborview: Going north from the campus of Community College of Baltimore County Dundalk, this area includes the massive Sacred Heart and Saint Andrews cemeteries and moves on up past Harborview Park to the Oaklawn cemetery. Fortunately for the living who are looking to rent an apartment, there is housing too.$$$$
