As a local person, it is always my go to place for any information I may need. I especially like to purchase a city certificate as a gift for enjoying so many things in Frederick. There are many brochures and small keepsake items for a remembrance. Every volunteer I have met there have been knowledgeable and so friendly. Stop in... More

This place was really nice for what it is (a place for travelers to refresh and relieve themselves). It was clean everywhere inside and out when we were there. It's obvious the people taking care of it are dedicated to keeping it pleasant. There is lots of helpful information available for tourists, however, we were just passing through on this... More

First-rate Visitor Center. Knowledgeable staff, lots of info, and one of the best film shows of a place we have ever seen. Also the cleanest bathrooms!

The ladies that I had dealings with at the visitor centre,could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend visiting,even if only to watch the 14m movie on the history of Frederick.

I recently stopped at the visitors center as I, new to the area. It is a beautiful building and a great amount of varied information. The 'waterfall was amazing'. There is, as you would expect, handouts and information on about any need or interest in Frederick county. I have made plans for many options as I explore my new area.

Lovely center. Plenty to look at, including a short video. Seemed understaffed, must have been close to lunch time. Parking lot was not very accommodating, a sign warned visitors not to spend too long in the few visitor parking spaces. Must not have many spaces for visitors. The gentleman inside very nicely told other visitors not to worry about the... More

The staff at the visitor center were very helpful, provided several restaurant recommendations, gave us info on Civil War sites in the area and provided a bag full of tourist info. Couldn't ask for more from a visitor center.
