Date Night in Downtown

From an early morning meet-up to a night together on the town, we’ve got your next date covered!

There is just something so lovely about the beautiful and functional Carroll Creek that makes it the perfect destination for your next date. You can chat the night away with your sweetheart while admiring downtown’s very own lovers’ lane. Depending on the time of year you are adventuring downtown, you will also be able to admire incredible sculptures or illuminated boats to make this a date night you can repeat over and over again with the promise of something new.

Check out any of our five parking garages downtown at to make romantic plans to see the evening sunset from new heights! From the top of any of the five decks, you can get a front row seat to the SECOND most beautiful view in Frederick (the first being… your date of course!) and snap a selfie!

Whether you and your partner are artists at heart or simply admirers, the Delaplaine Arts Center is a must for the couple that embraces creativity! Bond with your sweetie with one of the many classes or workshops they offer or just take a stroll through the gallery exhibits together. Whether you’re showing off your own talent or admiring someone else’s, the Delaplaine provides the perfect sanctuary for a memorable date night that you and your partner are sure to appreciate.

Take a self-guided walking tour of our downtown art galleries! There’s no better way to admire local art than with your human artwork by your side. Grab a quick bite downtown before you embark on your tour to appreciate local creations in every way. Get started here!
