Once upon a time we thought we wanted to live in the country, in Frederick, MD to be precise. We bought a sweet little brick house that just happened to sit in the middle of five acres of pretty pasture grass. Fast forward 2 1/2 years and we sold the house and bought one way tickets to Europe. As much as we loved the small city of Frederick and our little brick house, it turned out we didn’t love living in the country. As a friend said, “How could you know you wouldn’t enjoy living in the country if you didn’t try?” With that being said though, here’s why you should visit Frederick, MD.
