The Winter Olympics are in full-swing and this is a good time to not only cheer for your favorite team but also remember all of the fun "Olympic-like" businesses we have in Frederick County. With all the hockey, ice skating, and speed skating, check out Skate Frederick as our local business where you can improve your skating abilities and have a lot of fun. 

Do the Olympics bring out your feelings of national pride? Frederick has several flag companies, like US Flag Service, where you can get US flags to show your spirit.

If the Summer Olympics is more your style, several local businesses offer cycling, equestrian, golf, gymnastics, swimming and tennis to name a few from the summer games so start practicing now! 
Even if sports aren't your cup of tea, join the fun by hosting an Olympics party with locally-grown foods and drinks.

I hope you are enjoying the XXIII Olympic Winter Games!
