Frederick County is located in Western Maryland and is part of the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan Area. It is home to the President’s retreat at Camp David.
Downtown Historic Frederick provides the backdrop for a bustling business community. Residents go local to support a number of retail and boutique stores and restaurants. The food is something to write home about, like Bryan Voltaggio’s restaurant Volt.
The agricultural influences in Frederick County are clearly evident in the numerous farmers markets and CSAs that are open to the public. South Mountain Creamery supplies the region with its bovine delights.
Frederick County is in the midst of change with many new developments. Strict zoning laws ensure that the historic appeal of the county’s downtown area is not lost to the future. Also to note, there are concerts in the park during the summer and the annual festival, In the Streets, always brings out a good crowd.
