About Frederick

Frederick was settled by German immigrants in the mid-1700s. By the mid 1800s, it was a major mining area, producing, iron, marble, limestone, gold, and copper, along with other minerals. Because of its location, both Union and Confederate troops were led directly through the city during the Civil War. Many slaves eventually fled the area to fight with the Union, and the city was the site of a speech delivered by President Abraham Lincoln after the Battle of Antietam.

Located in Frederick County in northern Maryland, the city of Frederick is situated along several different interstates. It sits west of Baltimore and north of D.C.

About BWI

Originally Friendship International Airport, BWI was dedicated by President Truman and began operating in 1950. With plans to upgrade and modernize in 1973, the name was changed to Baltimore-Washington International Airport to reflect its role as the region’s transportation hub. And in 1980, with the opening of BWI Rail Station, serviced by Amtrak, BWI became the nation’s first airport served by a dedicated intercity train station. With another renovation in 2005, came another name change – to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The new title honors Baltimore native Thurgood Marshall who became the first African-American Supreme Court Justice.

Things to do at BWI

Delayed flight? If you need something to do while you wait, you’re in luck. In addition to a wide variety of eateries and retail shops, BWI has a few unique attractions. You can walk the BWI Cardio Trail, which consists of two different one-mile loops in the terminal. Or if you’d rather relax, you can stop by the meditation room (between Concourses D and E) or the BWI Observation Gallery. The gallery features children’s play equipment, the Maryland Youth Art Gallery, aviation exhibits, and a restaurant/ cocktail lounge. Plus, the Thurgood Marshall Tribute, next to the Observation Gallery, offers a fascinating exhibit about the legendary civil rights activist.
