Moving to Frederick Area

I'm thinking about relocation to Frederick Co. My wife is not interested in moving to any rural areas, but still wants to stay within easy access to Frederick City, and of course she wants good schools for our children. What areas should we avoid, and which areas are good.

Gettysburg Pennsylvania is close to Frederick Marylinistan AND is in FREE America! I moved to Myersville in 1990 and was a nice rural area midway between Frederick and Hagerstown. Since then we’ve gotten the “refugees” from MoCo and the first thing they wanted to do was change it to where they came from! If you gotta stay in Marylinistan I’d say Washington county.

Avoid Frederick altogether! No...just joking. It would better to have you tell us what areas you're looking at and we can say whether they're good or not. There are so many communities...both new and older...it's difficult to keep track of them all as far as crime rates, safety, schools, etc. Definitely stay away from the Route 40/West Patrick Street area. Middletown is ok...Braddock Heights (where I live) is nice but the costs are getting out of hand. Walkersville is going to swallow up northern Frederick it seems. Urbana has grown tremendously and is essentially Montgomery County North.

I basically second TOMB, W Patrick St is going downhill, Urbana for easy access to MoCo, Walkersville for small town feel with easy access across the river to new commercial and residential areas. Linganore Lake and New Market are nice communities as well. Don't know as much about towns to the west.

How close to Frederick city/non-rural do you want?

Gettysburg,PA and Leesburg,VA and even WV are both good options. I work in Rockville, MD, and we have folks from those areas who commute to Rockville, none of them would ever consider moving to MD!!
Avoid MD altogether, and don't buy an NVHomes or Ryan constructed home or townhouse, the older the home the better the quality of construction...
Avoid Urbana, the park and ride there is getting cars broken in, and catalytic converters cut out, coin guy who was there got his shop burglarized....

There are far worse places in MD you could end up than Frederick. We moved there from Columbia/HoCo in 2011 and have been pretty satisfied. We built a house in South Frederick in 2012 and still like the area a lot.

The area South of Tuscarora HS is growing like crazy and doesn't show any signs of letting-up anytime soon. No city taxes. Still relatively 'affordable' by MD standards. Lots of new construction. Decent schools and decent neighborhoods with easy access to I-70/270 and all the DC airports.

Yep, consider Leesburg and VA property near Point of Rocks.

Pennsylvania is out of the question. My wife and I grew up there and we know well the grass is not greener. However, were looking 15-20 mins outside of town. All these suggestions have been well received.

We liked the areas that were closer to Howard County due to rating schools are getting in those areas.
