Downtown Frederick is a great place to check out. If you want to be there when there is a lot going on, make sure to go during the Gallery Walks, on the first Saturday of every month. Carroll Creek is a great place to walk the water, with tasty places to eat nearby. Market Street is the main street, with lots of shops and restaurants to try. There are also many bars on this street. During the Gallery Walks, you'll get to really interact with the local people and the shop owners. Look out for Doggy Days during the summer!
