Walkersville Reviews

3 reviews
I have lived my entire life in Walkersville and I think it's a great place to live. It's a quiet, rural town near Frederick, Maryland. There are plenty of fun things to do within easy driving distance, but it's also easy to have a quiet night at home. There are a few sketchy neighborhoods, but they are on the outskirts and shouldn't be much of a problem. The housing is relatively cheap, but due to more homes being constructed is on the rise.

Amazing small town atmosphere! The community is fully involved in the schools, sports and town. There is pride in Walkersville Maryland!
My Husband and I have moved to Walkersville and have felt very welcome and LOVE the quiet. We love the vendor fairs and farmer markets.
