Frederick, MD is the county seat of Frederick County in the heart of the state. It is also part of the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area as it is only a few miles away from each. The gorgeous city of Frederick was founded in 1730 and soon it became an important place because of its proximity to the two cities. Fur trading and lumber originally dominated the economic scene here but now Frederick is a diverse area drawing people from around the area for the comfortable life it provides. This comfort, the proximity to DC, and its own cultural highlights make it well worth a visit.
There are dozens of amazing landmarks in the city, so don’t forget to pack some comfy walking shoes for strolling around town. Visit the Historic Downtown Frederick where canals, tiny bridges, old churches, and other landmarks create a charming, almost-European look and feel. Visit the Monocacy National Battlefield to explore some an authentic fort, see real canons, and experience a place with tons of Civil War significance. Additionally, make sure to check out the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, which is located in an old, beautiful building. The exhibits are very interesting and seeing the how much medicine has advanced in the last century is flabbergasting.
Those that wish to spend some time outdoors and enjoy the beauty of Maryland go to Baker Park. Here nature lovers can walk on the creek shore, feed ducks, kayak, or take the kids to the playgrounds. There are some nice flowery gardens and a large clock tower to check out as well.
The best areas to stay in Frederick are Carrollton and Baker Park where visitors can be close to beautiful parks, historic downtown areas, landmarks, museums, and much more.
The best time to visit Frederick is early July when the weather is not too hot or rainy and visitors can take part in the 4th of July celebrations, which are widely honored all over Maryland and bring in visitors from all over the area.
