The Night Is Young!

Oct 16, 2018

Your days are booked, but the night is young! Keeping students going well into the evening can be a challenge. Located less than one hour from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore and just 30 minutes from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is Frederick, Maryland—the perfect basecamp for a regional student tour. Check out these cool evening activities for student groups visiting Frederick County.

Maryland Ghost Tours takes your student group on a meandering walk through historic Downtown Frederick, to hear about the legends and lore around every corner. Take an evening tour of historic Mount Olivet Cemetery, whose most notable “resident” is Francis Scott Key, author of “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Strap on a lightweight, high-tech suit and enter the huge multilevel arena for laser tag at Shadowland Laser Adventures. Specialty fog, lighting and music create an experience unlike anything else.

Students can step back into the Wild West at Adventure Park, USA. This indoor/outdoor entertainment center offers students the perfect way to blow off some steam: a large indoor arcade with games, laser tag, bumper cars and a café—all open year-round. In warmer weather, two roller coasters, mini-golf and other outdoor amusement rides await your group.
