Frederick, Maryland is an absolutely great town. It is geographically located so you can be in the mountains in about 20 minutes, the big cities of DC or Baltimore in 45 minutes, and even the beach in less than two hours. It is located in the mid atlantic so you get to experience all four seasons. The downtown area is fabulous, schools are good, and there are plenty of job opportunities. Frederick is a great place to raise a family!

Downtown Frederick is the crown jewel of this small city. It is a fantastic historic district that is beautiful and safe. There is great night life, a couple of small museums, and a ton of cool shops. Absolutely worth a visit.
