It was our first visit to Frederick, so we stopped at the Visitor Center to get our bearings. It's a beautiful facility with lots of information, some exhibits, and very friendly and helpful staff. Also, the bathrooms are clean and available. Well worth the stop.

I have lived in Frederick for over 20 years and have learned a lot at the Frederick Visitors Center. There is a great movie about Frederick and they have dozens of brochures about every conceivable place to visit. They also have souvenirs for sale. The people who work there are very helpful and friendly.

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.
