Cecil County Living
Affordable housing. Good schools. Extensive shoreline. Beautiful countrywide. Elkton, Maryland and surrounding communities of Cecil County offer the gracious living and family values you crave.
Nestled between Philadelphia and Baltimore, Elkton is on the northern headwaters of the majestic Chesapeake Bay. A stroll down its tree-lined streets reveals a city that has beautifully blended many historic structures from the Revolutionary War with a modern, thriving business community. Yet, getting a taste of the big city is so convenient. You will find yourself only a half hour from Wilmington, DE, an hour from Philadelphia and Baltimore and about two hours from Washington DC and New York City.
Elkton’s average housing prices are 20% lower than the state of Maryland. In fact, a favorable cost of living means your money will go further here.
If you have school age children, you will be comforted to know that we have a strong public school system and a number of private schools. Two high schools in our county are ranked in the top 9% of the nation by US News & World Report.
Once you experience Elkton and its many surrounding communities, you will love what you see and want to make this your home.
