Located on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Wicomico County is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay just thirty minutes west of Ocean City's beach and boardwalk. With a population just over 100,000, the area offers a perfect blend of major metropolitan and small town charm. As the Eastern Shore of Maryland's largest municipality, Salisbury is the region's hub for entertainment and shopping.
Proximity – Miles from Major Cities
The Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport is serviced by US Airways. The airport is located only ten miles from downtown Salisbury.
Wicomico County rests at the crossroads of two major highways, making it easily accessible from every direction. US Route 50 runs east to west while US Route 13 travels north to south. Both Routes will take you into the heart of Wicomico County, through the city of Salisbury.
Our entire DMVelite team is extremely excited about our partnership. The Governor's Challenge has clearly established itself as the area's top holiday basketball tournament, and we are certain that it will continue to grow. Partnering with Wicomico County was an absolute no-brainer. Both parties are striving to improve community ties through sport and education while providing an enjoyable, high-level basketball experience for student-athletes, families and fans.Edgar Walker, Director of Scouting, DMVelite Showcase Events
