I thought about trying to walk on it but then thought better of it. Instead, we just enjoyed the ice sculptures and fire from the burner of a hot air balloon on display. Sadly,... More

This man-made, sidewalk-lined canal runs through downtown Frederick. There are interesting historical markers, koi in the canal, and great shops and restaurants along the canal. Loved it!

This was a very attractive walkway and gathering spot for all ages and types along an historic creek in a city full of history. On a clear, warm, late summer Sunday morning it was just the place to be. Very enjoyable.
