Only 45 minutes from Washington, DC and Baltimore is hip & historic Frederick. The city charms visitors with award-winning restaurants, cool art galleries and cultural happenings, and craft beers loved by locals. No wonder the National Trust of Historic Preservation recognised Frederick as one of “America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations
With its collection of historic homes, museums and battlefields, Frederick, is a must-see destination for any history enthusiast too. 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.
