As the third-largest city in Maryland and the seat of Frederick County, Frederick has a lot to offer. Downtown, you will find over 150 shops, museums, and restaurants. Many residents and Frederick real estate owners enjoy the proximity of the Harry Grove Stadium, home to the minor league baseball affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, while history buffs appreciate the city’s rich Civil War-era history. But Frederick is perhaps best known for its commitment to the arts, thanks in large part to the efforts of the Frederick Arts Council. Performances by the Frederick Symphony Orchestra and the Frederick School of Classical Ballet – as well as events held by the popular Weinberg Center for the Arts – are staples of the city’s community calendar, as is the annual Maryland Shakespeare Festival.

With lush area parks, superior educational and employment opportunities, and a high quality of life, it’s no surprise that Frederick real estate is in great demand. Families in particular often seek out Frederick real estate, since the city is home to several excellent public schools as well as both Frederick Community College and Hood College. Others choose Frederick real estate for its accessibility, thanks to the Frederick Municipal Airport.
