Tips for your next visit to College Park: Stop by MilkBoy ArtHouse for a hip-hop album release party, or to try your hand at watercolor painting. Grab a latte at Vigilante Coffee, then explore the neighboring vintage store. Stay the night, wrapped in the plushiest Turkish robe, in the Hotel at the University of Maryland.
Doesn’t sound like the college town you remember, right? It shouldn’t. This is Greater College Park, a massive $2 billion private and public investment to reimagine the Baltimore Avenue corridor, along the tracks of the coming Purple light-rail line and around the College Park Metro Station.
Today, it’s bustling with new tech ventures, eclectic businesses, ultramodern housing and a vibe you haven’t felt here before.
You can find all the details at greatercollegepark.umd.edu.
