  • Informative & Fun!

    by JmFaller

    This app helped me realize the historical beauty of Downtown Frederick. I have lived in Frederick for 2 years but never knew these amazing facts about the town. It taught me to appreciate the architecture of the buildings and so much more! I even found new shops and restaurants that I didn't even know existed downtown, just by touring with the app. The tour was easy to follow and made for a very nice day. I would recommend this for visitors as well as Frederick natives!

  • Wonderful Tour

    by G&PS

    If you want to explore America's early history in the context of a thriving and evolving city, this is a wonderful self-guided tour. The writing is creative with a documentary-like feel and the narration is top notch! My husband and I combined it with a break for lunch and some shopping for a rich and fun day .
