If you like to walk or even bike, the Carrol Creek park is a must place to visit and is connected to Baker Park. The area has a nice selection of places to eat near by. It is also easy access to downtown Frederick, which then has tons of restaurants and shops.

When we have out of town guests we always take them down to Frederick to walk along the canal there. It was created to stop the flooding from the Monocacy River which is nearby and used to devastate the city with water every few years. It was a brilliant idea to create a way to stop the flooding but to... 更多
