      Living in Elkton, MD I had heard over flyover states, and I equate Elkton, MD as a drive-through town similar to those flyover states The location is beautiful with small waterways around town and plenty of green, grassy farmland. The problem is that there just isn't much to do in Elkton.

      Elkton is a popular stop for those that are driving down Interstate 95 on the east coast of the United States. This is because there are multiple truck stops and diners in town. Some of these diners such as Cracker Barrel feature small stores filled with gadgets and trinkets.

      Residents of Elkton, MD take advantage of the low cost of living in town. Most will commute into Dover or Wilmington, Delaware with some commuting south to Baltimore. The challenge with this is there is only one main road that goes into those towns and that is Interstate 95 which backs up frequently, especially on Friday evenings and weekends May through September.
