Welcome to Downtown Frederick

Historic, lively, and unique, this town is steeped in history.
With over 200 shops, galleries, and restaurants, Downtown Frederick certainly has personality. A quaint small town steeped in Civil War history, the area features a 40-block historic district and a calendar full of community events.
Abundant in parks and rich in well-preserved architecture, Downtown Frederick boasts plenty of antique shops, a thriving arts scene, and several museums. Located less than one hour from Washington, D.C., you can tour a battlefield, visit a craft brewery and dine on contemporary American cuisine all in one day. 
It’s scenic here, filled with mountain views and many hiking trails. A vibrant Main Street vibe complements the views nicely.
