The seat of government of, and largest town in, Carroll County, Maryland.

Things to do in Westminster:

  • Drive a truck with absurdly large tires, or an import car with an absurdly large spoiler, in slow circles around one of Westminster's fine parking lots. I've never done this myself; but it must be terribly exciting, judging by it's popularity.
  • Eat at Johhanson's, or The Fat Cat. Avoid The Westminster Inn; it's overrated.
  • Be sure to visit the Carroll County Farm Museum. It's a quiet, unnassuming restored 17th century farm; but more interesting than you might expect. It's also the site of any number of annual Carroll County festivals. Catch the Tractor Show or the Fiddler's Convention if you happen to be in town for them.
  • Thank your lucky stars your not in Sykesville, Maryland.
