New Year, New Mile?

New Years Resolutions for the Golden Mile.

Now that January is wrapping up, let’s discuss the New Year Resolutions we have for the Golden Mile!

Whether you’re a long-time resident or newcomer to the west side of Frederick, we all have our wish-list for things we’d like to see on the Golden Mile. Here’s ours!

1. ​Get a night life.

Downtown Frederick can’t be the only spot for entertainment, can it?  Absolutely not! 40 has way too many lively residents for the strip not to have a booming nightlife for all ages. Add a hookah bar here, a karaoke and dance joint there, a late night hang out spot for the stragglers and voila! The point is, the mile is missing out on the night life that is so desperately needs.

2. A better boutique scene.

There have been small, recent pop ups of specialty, boutique shops on 40 here and there, (i.e. Curvy Girl Resale Boutique, etc) but the Golden Mile is a prime location for smaller, niche boutiques whether it be for sneaker heads or

3. Movies or a mall. Pick one!

Either or, just pick. Old timers know the Hoyts movie theater and the Frederick Towne Mall were two of the most loved staples on the mile. They drew the most crowds and it was a way to see the community. Both choices are dearly missed and can be returned!
