Many of Northern Chesapeake Bay’s most interesting sights are near to Elkton, so it is a convenient place to base yourself. Two destinations that should be at the top of every visitor’s list is the fascinating University of Delaware Botanic Gardens and the much-loved Lums Pond State Park. Two other recommended attractions that are within a short distance of Elkton are the Fair Hill State Natural Resources Management Area and the Back Creek Golf Club.
Watch local favorites, the Wilmington Blue Rocks, take to the field in the nearby Daniel S. Frawley Stadium, Wilmington. On game days follow the procession of blue and grey, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fellow sports lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a post-game drink.
After exploring the streets of Elkton, put up your feet and relax in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. The Ramada Newark/Wilmington, the Red Roof PLUS+ Wilmington - Newark and the Red Roof Inn & Suites Newark - University are just some of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
