show info

Located at the northern headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay, Elkton has all the comforts and charm one expects of a small town. Yet, nestled between the four major metropolitan areas of New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., everything you could possibly want is a simple car or train ride away. Today, the city itself is full of beautiful historic architecture from the early 1800s, yet it is also a city of growth with an active business community,

Gretna Green of the W

Due to some lax marriage laws, Elkton was known as the "Gretna Green of the West" until the late 1930s. Just like the famous town in Scotland, couples from all over the country would retreat to Elkton to elope. The town was filled with several wedding chapels and was actually a booming business for the town. This came to an end 1938 when new law was passed that set a 48-hour waiting period requirement. Although Elkton is no longer a runaway wedding destination, many of the old wedding chapels still stand throughout the town.

Fall Fest

For free family fun, look no further than Elkton's Fall Fest. Occurring annually each September, this festival is filled with food, crafts, games, and entertainment for all to enjoy. During this time, Main Street is closed down and filled with craft tents and food vendors. This provides a relaxed environment for families to stroll along the downtown area safely, browsing the local arts and crafts. From Main Street, make sure to turn onto North Street, which is where you will find the stage. Live entertainment will be provided throughout the fest and everyone is welcome to attend.

Fresh Food and Family

Family owned and operated since 1902, there is no better place to find local and fresh fruits and vegetables year round than Milburn Orchards. Open every day but Sunday, you will also find fresh homemade pies, famous apple cider donuts, and other delicious baked goods in their farmers market as well. But it does not stop there. From apple picking to corn mazes, Milburn Orchards also offers a variety of Autumn activities through September and October that are perfect for families, such as hayrides, a pumpkin patch, and lots of games. There are special event weekends for the Summer Harvest, Easter, and Christmas as well.
