There are plenty of backroads in Frederick County just waiting to be explored! Here are some of the best scenic drives in Maryland according to Autoblog.
Paint Kindness Rocks
Imagine walking through the neighborhood and finding a rock that’s painted bright green and blue with the words, “You are loved” painted on it. Wouldn’t finding something like this make you smile?
Spread some love by painting rocks with encouraging messages, and distribute them around your neighborhood for folks to see while walking!
S’mores make for the perfect treat over the summer! Host a fun BBQ and bonfire with friends and make some classic s’mores for dessert.

Backyard Movie Night
Watch a movie with your family tucked under blankets and seated together under the stars. Creating a DIY movie in the backyard isn’t as hard as it sounds!
If you have an old white sheet, tape that up to the side of your house, and at dusk, start rolling the movie! Grab some popcorn, start a bonfire, and enjoy the slowness and beauty that summer brings.
