Travel Diaries: A Tour Through Downtown Frederick, Maryland


I post often about Washington, DC and all of the other historic places I live near, but I'm just a few minutes from one of my favorite city destinations. Downtown Frederick, MD is home to boutiques, nationally renowned restaurants and a river walk. The fresh flowers, old brick buildings, and bustling cafes make it the perfect place to park and walk around on a Saturday afternoon. The shop owners are all friendly, and most of them even allow pets if you want to do your window shopping with a four-legged friend.


Window shopping is always better with friends. That's me (on the right) and my best bud Jessica (left) dating back to middle school. I am so lucky to have had her in my life for so long and to now be living in the same state despite the fact that we're both so far from home.


The first and most important stop downtown is always Zoe's chocolate. You can pick up a salted caramel and even a chocolate mustache pop.


You have to teach them when they're young that grocery-store chocolate is not the good stuff. The good stuff is handmade on a marble slab in a boutique chocolate shop.


Old red brick, painted window shutters, and flowers in planter boxes line the streets. It's an ideal place to take photos of the kids.


The river walk in downtown Frederick is home to more cafes and hosts summer concerts and arts & crafts festivals. During some city festivals, they even host canoe and paddle-boat rides.

I hope you enjoyed a tour of my town. Please take a moment to visit Shereen Travel Cheap for my DC travel guide 48 Fun Hours on a Budget In Washington D.C.
