LA PLATA, Md. - 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!
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!
