Zip Trip: Upper Marlboro | Alive with history

- This week, our FOX 5 ZIP TRIP takes us to the town of Upper Marlboro, Maryland!

Upper Marlboro is one of the oldest surviving towns in southern Maryland! Established in colonial times, the town became an important port town for tobacco shipments.

The town has been called home by many prominent national, state, and local figures throughout the years - and its close proximity to D.C. helps it maintain its popularity and desirability.

During all of our summer FOX 5 ZIP TRIPS, you'll have a chance to win an all-new 2016 Mazda CX-9!

There are so many fun things to do when visiting Upper Marlboro it’s hard to keep count! Here are THE 5 MUST STOPS that you just can’t miss when taking your own Zip Trip!

This week's Dunkin Donuts Firehouse Friday salutes the Upper Marlboro Fire Department.

Lookout world - here comes our Cold Stone Junior Reporter Dontajah Gillis!
