The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, which encouraged citizens to vote in the contest, captured the spirit of Sykesville this way: “In a state full of small towns with charm, Sykesville stands out. Traversed by the B&O Railroad, which still passes through the town regularly, the town also boasts a beautiful view of the Patapsco River, along with a thriving main street that has given new life to the community as it rebounded from the recession. Along the town’s main street, visitors can find many independently-owned shops and restaurants. The town also pays homage to its railroad history through train rides for children, model train displays, and a restaurant located in the former B&O Train Station.”
Budget Travel will include a feature on Sykesville in an upcoming issue of its magazine, which is published six times annually.
