In the survey, the largest suburbs of the nation's 50 biggest cities were ranked by these per capita: nightlife, such as bars, comedy clubs and nightclubs; live music venues; and active life options, like parks and outdoor activities, according to Business Insider.
Towson had high marks for live music and nightlife.
"Not hard to see the excitement here!" Fronda Cohen of the Baltimore County Office of Communications said.
"Turn up the music at a WTMD live lunch at Olympic Place, in Towson University Center for the Arts and Stephens Hall, or Goucher’s Kraushaar Auditorium," Cohen said.
This summer, Towson Square will add 15 Cinemark movie theaters and eight new restaurants in the downtown area, she added.
While nightlife and entertainment options were positive in the rankings, the more fast food restaurants an area had, the worse it did.
Towson had a high number of fast food establishments, according to Business Insider, but it placed high for non-fast-food restaurants too.
Notably, Towson ranked fifth of the 140 suburbs for its number of young residents (age 13 to 34).
