The small historic area of Ellicott City is a delightful place to explore any time of year. As part of the Baltimore metropolitan area, Ellicott City is bursting with things to do for guests of all ages. Personally, I love a trip to a small town or city that has unique features dating back decades. For instance, in Ellicott City, you can still visit the oldest surviving train station in the country! While there are so many things to do in Ellicott City, Maryland, you’ll need quite a bit of time to explore, we’ll settle for a weekend and hopefully entice you.
