With its collection of historic homes, museums and battlefields, Frederick, Maryland, is a must-see destination for any history enthusiast. The sites of two bloody Civil War battles are preserved at Monocacy National Park and South Mountain State Park. Within the city, visit the National Museum of Civil War Medicine and learn how soldiers wounded in those battles were treated, or visit the house of Barbara Fritchie and picture her hanging the Stars & Stripes in defiance of the Confederate Army.

Stopped here for Information and the staff was helpful and spent lots of time with us. Many displays for things to do in town or in the area.

On an impromptu trip to Frederick, we had several hours to explore the historic area. Not having seen the city for several decades, we were pleasantly surprised at the extent of the refurbishing of older buildings and the variety of shops, bars, and restaurants throughout the area. We didn’t have enough time to get to all of the museums and other attractions in the vicinity, so we’ll have plenty of things to go on a return visit.

Baker Park is a beautiful setting in downtown Frederick. As we get ready for next week's 4th of July activities, we especially enjoy the grand finale, the fireworks show, But those who live in the Frederick area are also lucky because of the free Summer Concert Series which is held every Sunday from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Bring your blanket and picnic dinner. And next week, enjoy the fireworks show.

Pick a nice day to stroll the creek and take in the atmosphere of people, places and things. Several good restaurants along creek and nearby. Walk thru downtown Frederick and visit the quaint historic city.

This key Civil War battlefield marked the last push north by Confederates in 1864. Although it's seen as a confederate victory, this advance on Washington, D.C. was brought to a hault by the forces led by Major General Lew Wallace, U.S. Army.
We stopped here after staying in Baltimore and checked out Monocacy Battlefield. The visitor center is small but well run and informative. A small group of Union soldiers withstood a larger confederate force trying to enter Washington at a time when it was lightly defended. The delay led to a reinforcement of Union troops to defend the Capitol. The battle was fought at several points in the area. I recommend checking it out if you have an hour or so to spend in Frederick MD.

The National Museum of Civil War Medicine is the premier center for the study and research of medical innovation during the American Civil War. Exhibits, programs lecture and research facilities look at innovations in science, medical logistics, medical organization, nursing, civilian medical relief and much more.
A small private museum with great exhibits on Civil War medicine. They spend a good deal of time making it clear that there were trained doctors doing the best with what they had in terms of medicines and conditions. Loads of artifacts, and the requisite...MoreWe're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit, and the uniqueness of our story.

This mural that magically turns a concrete bridge into an old English stone bridge is beautiful and quite surprising. I already knew it was there and walked up and down the area twice before I realized what I was looking at. A really unique and attractive piece of community art in a lovely downtown park!

Harry Grove stadium is a great small park to enjoy minor league baseball up close and personal. These MLB hopefuls play with heart! The Keys games include many promotional events, fireworks, interactive activities with the crowd, a carousel for the kids and a beer tent for adults. My husband and I recently enjoyed a nice evening out with a promo group from our neighborhood. We had great seats behind home plate, which were also perfect for the fireworks show afterwards. The only negative was the outrageous price for uncooked hotdogs on cold soggy buns. Really?? If you are going to charge major league prices for the food, please make it edible. The beer was grossly overpriced as well but at least its harder to mess up. While I dreamed of enjoying a hot dog at the stadium, we wish we had just had one at home before we arrived. Strongly recommend the baseball experience but not the food.

This miniature city is very similar to Roadside America up in Pennsylvania though smaller in scale. However this miniature is much cleaner and better maintained. The site is definitely geared towards kids and they have lots of buttons to push which turn on different features. A few don't work but the operators are aware. The Lego room is different and reminds me of my childhood putting together different kits. It was like stepping back in time and reliving a childhood dream.

Want to experience where the malt meets the hop? Our tasting room is open Thursday through Sunday and reservations for our brewery tours are free on our website. Please note that no one under the age of 21, including babies and small children, is allowed on a tour or in the tasting room. Since you'll be touring a production area, closed-toe shoes are required. And in order to provide the best sensory experience, our brewery grounds are smoke-free.
Went here for lunch and a tasting, but were turned away at the door because of the kids with us. Overall it looked like a nice place, but I didn't see anywhere on TripAdvisor where the 21+ rule was mentioned, so I figured I would pass that tip along.
