On the outskirts of Churchville (technically in the Bel Air zip code), you will find Harford Community College – a real educational gem. HCC offers not only affordable college credits but wonderful summer camp programs, theatrical presentations for all ages, and free and inexpensive non-credit enrichment courses in a variety of skills and hobbies. Not far from the college, you can hit a bucket of balls at Churchville Driving Range or take a lesson with a world-class instructor. Yes, world-class – he’s a AAA Master Coach from Australia. You’ll also find two fun but challenging miniature golf courses and batting cages onsite. Not to be missed after your golf outing is a trip next door to the Arctic Circle where they serve good old-fashioned ice cream shop favorites including a variety of delicious soft serve from two front windows that never seem to be without a line. Maybe that’s because it’s also on the way home from Ripken Stadium, home of the Ironbirds. On a warm summer evening, there’s no better place to be than at the ballpark. You may even spot Cal there.
Churchville is home to some historic homes, including Medical Hall of the revolutionary war era Archer congressmen, sprawling estates, modest neighborhoods, and farmland. Many Churchville farms service the public not only with farm stands but school field trips, hay rides, corn mazes, and other related activities.
