Please stop by again sometime; we love to welcome visitors near and far, and we look forward to helping you find all kinds of new things to do here. It's always fun explore your own back yard, isn't it?

We stopped in here to get some information about the Battlefield in the area. We found very knowledgeable folks here. They were not hurried at all and answered all of our questions. We very much enjoyed our stop here!

Vicki, thanks for your review. We love to send people to the Monocacy Battlefield Visitor Center, which is only ten minutes from the Visitor Center. All of us travel ourselves, so we know the value of providing solid information to help make trips more memorable!

Frederick Visitor Center is one of the nicer, most informative visitor centers around. You can also purchase tickets to Frederick City sponsored events, such as holiday house tour, garden tours, etc.

Thanks for your review! This year, Celebrate Frederick has streamlined the process for purchasing tickets for the Garden Tour and Candlelight House Tour by offering them exclusively online. However, we are always here to answer questions and provide recommendations for dinner, parking, and other activities!

We stopped here first as recommended by the Frederick website. I'm glad we did because the staff were very helpful and we even got validated parking at no cost to us.

We do validate the white entrance ticket received at the East All Saints Parking Garage, saving visitors 3 hours of parking fees Monday through Friday. On weekends, the parking lot just off Commerce Street is open to all visitors. Thank you for your visit!
