Frederick, MD, is so close to Washington, DC, that it has an inexpensive commuter train for residents and guests. But have you ever stopped in the quaint, historic city? Disclosure: I was graciously hosted by the folks of Visit Frederick, MDto give you the scoop on date night ideas.
Fun date night ideas
All opinions are my own! But no more, my friends. Last month, I hit the road to only visit Frederick and, man, am I happy I did. The city is pristinely beautiful, the locals, welcoming, and the activities fun and affordable.
My first time on an pedal-assisted bike was in Frederick last month. Along with my group, we biked the city — and I barely had to pedal! Similar to a motorcycle, each bike has a throttle and all you need to do is turn it lightly to get a speed boost.
Also worthy of note: Pedego Frederick has the coolest rug that has ties to Ringo Starr. If you love The Beatles, make sure to ask about it.
Pittsburgh, PA, is highly bikeable as well. When I was a kid, I loved climbing trees.
There was something about seeing how close I could get to the top and that feeling of exploration has always stayed with me. In Frederick, TreeTreekers just opened this summer and I had the pleasure of test-driving a couple of its courses before the official opening. Created for both seasoned adventure course-lovers and families in mind, it offers both advanced and beginner courses.
My favorite, however, is the self-led zipline course. After a lesson in how to clip in and out, I headed to the multi-line course. But what I loved the most was the fact that the final line was a zip-to-ground one. If you visit Downtown Frederick, make walking around the city on your shortlist.
There are tons of mom-and-pop stores, really good restaurants more on those belowand lovely views.
My favorite spot, by far, is the Carroll Creek area. During the summer, hit the timing just right and the lily p explode with blooms. If Mr. Locke would have taken me to a museum about the Civil War, I would have been in high heaven.
Date night ideas in downtown frederick
But, hey, to each her own, right? If you wanted to be a doctor, you went to school until you felt you were fit to practice. About a 20 minute drive away from Downtown Frederick is a really fun option for date night, especially if you like wine.
Once you arrive, there are both indoor and outdoor tasting options. Catoctin Breeze is very laid back, making it perfect for a first date or an 80th one.
Of course, my idea is to make it a picnic date, so pack a dinner and get ready for a scenic drive. The Shrine sits on land that Mother Seton actually lived on, but with plenty of hardships. I was very pleasantly surprised on its offerings, both downtown and away from the city proper.
Here are my suggestions. When chefs prepare meals for the entire kitchen and restaurant staff, it;s called a family meal. If you want a street view, ask for a table upstairs near the large picture window.
But, there are plenty of just-as-tasty menu items. Rockwell Brewery started with a couple of friends that love the concept of home brewing. Fast forward to where that labor of love turned into a craft brewery with a cool, industrial-chic vibe.
When I visited, there were plenty of staples and a few seasonals. There are plenty more craft breweries worth a visit in the Frederick, MD, area.
