Generations of Marylanders have called Arbutus their home, and for good reasons. Rolling hills give way to neighborhoods with a variety of modern and classic architecture dotted with county parks.
Arbutus has so much to offer, from the legendary Firecracker 10K race and parade on the Fourth of July and the Arbutus Arts Festival every May (celebrating 46 years in 2019). Each December, Santa Claus comes to the neighborhood riding on a fire engine driven by the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department. One of the newest branches of the Baltimore County Public Library and the adjacent Baltimore County Senior Center is only a few blocks away.
The downtown Arbutus corridor is vibrant with its mix of services, restaurants, and the legendary Hollywood Cinema 4. All of this and more gives Arbutus a small, home town feel.
Close to Everything but Miles from ordinary.
Ask anyone that lives in Arbutus and they will tell you they love their home because it is close to everything.
But what is everything?
Baltimore, Washington, DC, Annapolis, of course. But there is so much more.
Arbutus is minutes away from the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Relay (The only Guinness Brewery in the US); Patapsco Valley State Park and its miles of hiking and biking trails, paddling, fishing, picnic areas and recreation; Cultural and historic sites like the Thomas Viaduct in nearby Elkridge and Historic Ellicott City… and so much more.
Arbutus is the home to UMBC and its BWTech research and development center, and is minutes from Fort Meade and the NSA.
Major transportation routes are also moments away. Arbutus is near the interchange of I-95 and the Baltimore Beltway; MARC commuter train with service to Baltimore and Washington stops in town. BWI Marshall Airport and its Amtrak station with connections to the Northeast Corridor rail network are a few minutes’ drive down I-195.
