Everything you want to know about Frederick and the surrounding counties can be found here. The staff is super friendly and will answer any questions you have. Tons of brochures to plan your activities. Watch the 15 minute film of the area. One of the best VC I have ever stopped in.

There's a short film which highlighted many aspects of the area. The staff was exceedingly friendly and gave... More
