Offers a history of the area, plenty of brochures for activities, a small display of items for sale and super friendly people working behind the desk to answer questions. The facility is very clean. There is a parking lot and if it's the weekend, you can park there and walk to the center of... More

This information center does it job perfectly. Check it out first when visiting Frederick, it contains lots of interactive info about the town, is staffed by friendly knowledgable people and is located within walking distance to the downtown area, but still has lots of parking.

Very friendly and informative staff! A must stop to get to know the area. We've stopped in 3 times over the last couple years to find more detailed information, and never been disappointed.

We recently spent the day in Frederick to go to a wedding. We stopped by the visitor center to check out how to find the murals that I had seen years ago. We were given a map and detailed directions and very helpful instructions not only to the murals but the best way to get to the wedding. Unfortunately, after... More

Located in a restored building the Visitor Center is very nice and clean and it is situated in a very convenient location; it is not huge but it has all information about Frederick. The workers were very helpful.

This visitor center has lots of info! I imagine anything you can want info on they would have. The day we went we were able to get several questions answered in regards to the Frederick area. Nice location. Parking a bit of a problem for handicap but otherwise fine...

The visitor’s center is allocated a short way from Frederick Old Town, it is an easy two block walk. The center itself is full of information of Frederick and the surrounding area. It was quite busy when we were there and there was only one person at the desk. We had to wait but all our questions were answered and... More
