The most populated area of Howard County is in the center where Columbia and Ellicott City are located. One of the reasons behind this is the area’s historic downtown district, which not only contains plenty of dining and entertainment options, but a diverse amount of housing stock as well. In this rapidly expanding county you can find newly constructed Colonial-style estate homes and luxury townhouses, as well as garden style condominiums and studio apartments. Neighborhoods beyond the central part of the county may also include a more rural setting for those looking for a quieter way of life.

The Mall in Columbia is a well-known shopping mall within the county and contains five anchor stores: Sears, JCPenney, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Lord & Taylor. There are also over 200 specialty stores and an AMC Theatre, which attract shoppers from surrounding neighborhoods and counties. Merriweather Post Pavilion is just south of the mall and is a popular performing arts theater with a band shell and lawn seating featuring live performances by international acts.

Some notable restaurants and venues in the county range from Stanford Grill, Victoria Gastro Pub and the Iron Bridge Wine Company. Situated in Columbia, Iron Bridge Wine Company is a warm, cozy cafe presenting a seasonal New American menu and a celebrated wine collection. Tersiguel’s French Country Restaurant in Ellicott City is a romantic choice when dining out. Serving farm-to-table French country fare, Tersiguel’s is also notable for its 19th-century house and well-maintained bar.
