Although it is also home to Towson University and Goucher College, Towson is not just a college town. You will find Towson Town Center, a large 4 story shopping mall, a variety of shops, restaurants, theaters, bars and clubs, parks, and many outdoor activities. Light Rail travel to and from Baltimore City, BWI, and to areas south of Baltimore.
