Visitor spending is at an all time high.
Downtown Frederick's dining and shopping, year-round events, and the area's rich Civil War and american history make Frederick County a great place for tourist to come visit and spend their money.
John Fieseler, Executive Director of the Tourism Council says according to new reports, visitor spending is at an all time high.
"Every tax payer in Frederick County benefits when people who live other places come here and spend their money and go back home. We're fortunate that we live in an area that attracts visitors from other areas for a variety of reasons," said Feiseler.
Fieseler says the newer location of the visitors center on East Street has been helping to raise tourist numbers along with a Frederick County visitors "app" that out-of-towners and locals can use for information on upcoming events.
