LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Given the area’s agricultural roots, Frederick, Maryland, has often been teasingly called “Fredneck” by residents of more urban areas of the state.

Well, maybe it’s time people shed that podunk perception. According to the real estate company Movoto, Frederick is one of the 10 “sexiest suburbs” in the nation.

Movoto arrived that that conclusion by creating a list of the largest suburban communities in the U.S. (a total of 139 places), then using business listings from Yelp and weather data from Areavives to rank them in terms of nightlife, lingerie stores, adult stores, adult entertainment, massage parlors and hotels per capita, and the average summer temperature.

Frederick was ranked as one of the sexiest because it was 11th best overall for nightlife per capita, and 17th overall for its number of hotels. It also ranked high for its multiple lingerie stores and day spas.

Towson, Maryland came in 15th on the list, Columbia came in 35th and Silver Spring came in 37th.
