Elkton 

Photoof elk statue 

 

Elkton is located on the Colonial Highway of America, sitting at the northern headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay. Nestled between Philadelphia and Baltimore, Elkton is fortunate to have the comforts, charm, and atmosphere of a small town, with all the advantages of larger cities just minutes away. Treasuring its past, Elkton is a community friendly Town with fun filled events, restaurants, specialty shops, and unique art galleries along its brick trimmed sidewalks.

Elkton, called by many the “Marriage Capital of the World”, used to be referred to as the Las Vegas of the East. Elkton was a popular destination for couples that wanted to avoid the mandatory marriage license waiting period imposed by neighboring states.

Elkton’s downtown historic sites and nearby golf courses make it perfect for an afternoon or weekend visit.

Elkton is also both a designated Main Street Maryland community as well as Arts & Entertainment district.
