Zip Trip: La Plata | Southern Maryland at its best

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

La Plata is a southern Maryland town founded along the railroad!

Today, the historic area is known for being a great place to raise a family or start a business that's close enough - but just far enough away - from the hustle and bustle of the big city!

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 La Plata 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 La Plata Fire Department.

Check out our Geico Hometown Hero former Mayor Bill Eckman!

Lookout world - here comes our Cold Stone Junior Reporter Emily Winkler!

If you're out-and-about and spot us during our FOX 5 ZIP TRIP fun - snap a photo and post it online using #fox5ziptrip.

All summer long, we’ll be visiting some of the great places the DMV has to offer! Check out our full FOX 5 ZIP TRIP schedule here and revisit the fun we had during our earlier stops!

And don’t forget – enter our contest and you could have a chance at winning an all-new 2016 Mazda CX-9!
