Welcome To Frederick County

Where Hip meets historic every day

Here, museums meet martini bars, scenic landscapes provide thrill seekers with adventure, and cutting edge cuisine is served up in Civil War-era buildings alongside unique specialty shops, galleries, museums, and theaters.

Located less than one hour from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Gettysburg, the city of Frederick, Maryland is surrounded by mountain views, wineries, orchards and vibrant Main Street communities. Visitors can hike the Appalachian Trail, visit Maryland's largest brewery, and tour a battlefield all in one day.

This is Frederick County, where hip meets historic every day.

The Frederick Visitor Center will be closed on Wednesday due to hazardous weather conditions.

Events scheduled to take place today may be cancelled. Please contact individual event organizers for the most up to date information.
