  • Treasure #2: The sea-themed chainsaw carving at this location is a great shell-fie photo opp.  Not sure where to start? Check out the Arts in Public Places map for some pre-schooling. Find the carving, find this Treasure’s QR Code. 
  • Treasure #3: Saddle up your horse and mosey on over to this local stop for good coffee, eats, and brews. Giddy up! Check a north facing window for this Treasure’s QR code.
  • Treasure #4: History is golden in this small city hall. This building is home to pictures of Frederick’s beginnings and items to learn about a coal miners’ life. Check the front window for this Treasure’s QR code.
  • Treasure #5: Long locks can be given a trim at this tree street named studio. Check the front window for this Treasure’s QR code.
  • Treasure #6: This photographer-favorite spot is created for outdoor adventures. Walk the trail around it, fish in it, or boat (non-motorized) in it. Check the big sign at the entrance to this park to find this Treasure’s QR code.
