Frederick has seen explosive growth in recent years. Commuters continue to move to the city from the Washington suburbs in droves making it the third-largest city in Maryland. It's affordability, low crime, and beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are just a few of the many reasons why people have been drawn to the area. Many new industries have also planted roots in the area. Frederick represents its own miniature metropolitan area, with a strong downtown core surrounded by an affluent suburban ring. And while other historic downtowns have dried up and lost business with the development of a suburban culture, Frederick's has continued to thrive with a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Downtown's two largest employers include the county government along with Hood College, giving the area a diverse clientele. And no metropolitan area would be complete without an arts scene. The Weinberg Center for the Arts schedules shows featuring theatre, popular and classical music, dance, vintage movies, and more.

Although much of downtown is still historic, several mid-rise office buildings have been built to compete with the historic church spires that dominate the city's skyline. Amongst the historic buildings, and tree and brick-paved sidewalks, visitors will find a bustling downtown that rivals those of much larger cities. Frederick's Main Streets are Market Street, the main north-south corridor, and Patrick Street, the main east-west corridor. Additional shopping and dining can be found just east of downtown in the Everedy Square and Shab Row districts. To get there, head east on Patrick Street and enjoy the shops along the way.

Frederick is well worth a stop for anyone day-tripping through western Maryland. With its concentration of shops, restaurants, and museums, the city is a major draw for the area. In fact, the large amount of restaurants also creates a bustling nightlife that is unique for that part of Maryland.

Retail Hours

Stores are open seven days a week. Most close by five or six p.m. but a few stay open later on Fridays or Saturdays.

Visitor Center

Frederick Visitor Center (151 South East Street, 301-600-4047).

Attractions

The Civil War plays a large part in Frederick's history. To explore more of this past, check out the exhibits at the
National Museum of Civil War Medicine (48 East Patrick Street, 301-695-1864). It's amazing to see how primitive the profession was back then and make you thankful for what it is today.

There's also the Barbara Fritchie House and Museum (154 West Patrick Street, 301-698-8992) another attraction with a Civil War theme. Barbara Fritchie was a patriot who according to legend flew the Stars and Stripes out her window in protest of Stonewall Jackson's Confederate troops passing through town. Both of these museums also have gift shops.

The Weinberg Center for the Arts (20 West Patrick Street, 301-600-2828) schedules shows featuring theatre, popular and classical music, dance, vintage movies, and more.

Tips

You can combine your trip to Frederick with a visit to nearby New Market or Gettysburg or even just stop by for a nice dinner after a day of shopping at the Prime Outlets at Hagerstown.
