First advice on the BaoFeng's. Good radios and a great value but require knowledge to avoid johhny law coming down on you. So Google, Google, Google. Google CHIRP especially. Search search search on this forum too.
On frequencies, we use the GMRS bands. Technically, you need an $85 license to use GMRS. Functionally, the FCC doesn't care. Google FMS vs. GMRS to learn more.
