5 Reasons to Rent an Apartment in Frederick
It’s the City of Frederick’s turn in the spotlight.
• Location – Frederick is nearly equidistant to Washington, D.C., and Baltimore (48 miles or so from each), so it’s a tough but doable commute to either city. And commuters to D.C. can take the Maryland Transit Administration MARC train, which travels to Union Station. So it’s just near enough and far away at the same time; maybe you’ve got a job in Frederick itself? Even better.
• History – Civil War buffs will find Frederick a most interesting place. Visit the Battle of Monocacy grounds, and a little down the road, the South Mountain State Battlefield. You can also pay a house call to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. Frederick and its surrounding environs are steeped in Civil War history.
• Arts – If you think of Frederick as a stuffy old provincial town only concerned with its past, think again. Designated an Arts & Entertainment District by the state of Maryland, the city has also won other awards touting its uniqueness. A bunch of art galleries, museums and theaters make this a very artsy place for a city this size (62,000-plus).
• Major Minor – I attended a Frederick Keys game back in the day with my father and enjoyed it. If you like baseball unspoiled by huge contracts and egos, give Minor League Baseball a try. You can always say you saw them when.
• Parks A’plenty – This site lists nine of them located downtown, and that’s to go along with the many other, larger parks nearby. And if you want to get in shape, there’s the William R. Talley Recreation Center.
