ATV Off-Roading Adventure at Wicomico Motorsports Park

Marylander off-roaders are lucky to have so many fantastic options to get their riding on. But for a truly thrilling experience, check out Wicomico Motorsports Park. This spot is a haven for off-roaders, exclusively designed for four-wheelers and dirt bikes. For a long day of fun across hundreds of acres, you won’t want to miss this. Below, you’ll find an itinerary for an awesome off-roading adventure in Maryland! 

1. Marie’s Diner, La Plata, MD

It doesn’t get more classic than this La Plata diner. Start off your day with a filling breakfast that will keep you fueled for hours. Excellent, hearty options include the New York strip and eggs, country fried steak and eggs, pork chop and eggs, or the “Farm Hand,” made with two pancakes, one waffle, two eggs, two strips of bacon, and two sausages links—all for an affordable price. 

2. Wicomico Motorsports Park, Charlotte Hall, MD

This 300-acre motorsports park is the ultimate escape. The trails are safe and family-oriented, with beginner-level tracks geared toward children, an intermediate track, and an advanced track designed by professional riders. There are several miles of wooded trails to explore, as well. This great spot is open year-round, even on all federal holidays (except Christmas), so you can go riding any time you want.  

3. Gilligan’s Pier, Newburg, MD

Now that you’ve spent the day riding, it’s time to refuel. Gilligan’s Pier in Newburg is a great place to relax. Serving up delicious Maryland blue crab and freshly-caught seafood for 25 years, Gilligan’s Pier has been putting in great effort to buy from local farms and fishermen since its early days. Try any of their seafood baskets, sandwiches, soups, salads, and awesome entrees. Don’t forget to grab a beer, too. 

4. Dennison Street Inn, Colonial Beach, VA

For the night, we’re traveling just over the boarder to beautiful Colonial Beach, Virginia. The Dennison Street Inn is a stunning, historic spot to stay overnight. This luxury bed and breakfast is just a half a block away from the Potomac River. The inn is situated within a Queen Anne Victorian home that was built in 1893 for the first mayor of Colonial Beach. Now, guests are welcome to stay the night in one of several comfortable suites. In the morning, enjoy a homemade breakfast in the parlor room, or if it’s nice, on the front porch. 

5. George Washington Birthplace National Monument, Colonial Beach, VA

Before you wrap up your journey, it’s important you make one final spot before leaving Colonial Beach—George Washington’s birthplace. At this site, you’ll see an incredible colonial garden filled with plants and herbs that our Founding Father would’ve used in the 18th century. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch sight of the beautiful eagles in the area.
