Glen Burnie: Convenient Access to Baltimore, BWI Airport

Light rail

Tickets, please: The MTA’s Light Rail trains, which service 33 stations, including BWI Airport, are the easiest way to get around the Glen Burnie area.

There are 37,359 residents living in Glen Burnie, Md., according to the 2006-08 American Community Survey 3-Year Estimate. The town sits in Anne Arundel County about 10 miles outside of Baltimore, so for the apartment renter working in Charm City, the commute is ideal. Not only that, but you also have the added convenience of Maryland Transit Administration Light Rail service into the city as well. Turn around the other way, and you’re about 35 miles from Washington, D.C., a long, but workable commute.

There are quite a few shopping options in Glen Burnie, including Marley Station, which has anchors Macy’s, JCPenney and Sears, plus a bunch of other retailers, restaurants, and UA Movies at Marley Station 8. Whatever you can’t find in Glen Burnie, you can jump on the I-695 Baltimore Beltway and find it there. If for some reason you again fail in your quest, there’s D.C. a little ways down I-95. If you come up empty yet again, then you’re not trying very hard.

One positive about living in Glen Burnie is that the town provides easy access to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport; it’s only two or three miles to the northwest. Glen Burnie has two public high schools and several private schools to go along with Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) at Glen Burnie Town Center, an adjunct to the AACC’s main campus.

If living near Baltimore City and the airport fits your station in life, Glen Burnie would be a good option for renting. Find your next apartment at Apartment Showcase.
