So lucky to live close to such great places in our beautiful country. I have our Nations Capitol 45min away- the great port city of Baltimore, MD 45min - Alexandria, VA 45min away Gettysburg, PA1hr and very close to one of if not my favorite town - Frederick, Maryland! I cannot say enough about Frederick, Maryland. It is so charming - it has history - architecture - great dining options - The Tasting Room & Black Hog BBQ my favorites.....both have won "best of" in Frederick Magazine several years in a row (too many to count) Lucky Corner for Thai - The Orchard & Juice Plate for getting your healthy on...... but the shopping downtown is great (don't talk to me about shopping malls in Frederick - because to me there aren't any - period - done - end of story).. but downtown IS JUST FABULOUS!
