Being a entrepreneur\freelancer I am seriously considering moving to Baltimore.
I love Baltimore.
But as someone who has lived in DC, Baltimore, Philly, NYC, and Boston though, I'd be hard pressed to say that it is cleaner then any of them. It's still extremely polluted. And I wouldn't say it's all that livable (unless you are thinking of cost of living). But in terms of walk-ability, cleanliness, parks, pedestrian oriented space, etc, it still has a long way to go. I think it's on the right track though.
