12 reasons to Avoid Ellicott "City" MD

12. That's not a city. 11. The Folksy atmosphere is more conducive to rudeness than affability; in one visit, we were yelled at by a cyclist (who broke the law twice to tell us what he thought we were doing wrong), had one of our children PICKED UP by a stranger, and got a parking ticket at advertised "free" holiday parking). 10. Narrow streets. 9. "Quaint" streets more conducive to wrecks than a pleasant drive. 8. Not enough parking. 7. The "city" lies about parking being free, then collects hundreds of tickets during the Holiday season. 6. Cyclists act like they own the narrow streets. 5. Overpriced "merchants" on Main Street support the parking bait-and-switch. 4. Lots of hippie potheads on the street. 3. Unbelievably narrow sidewalks mean you must walk single file. 2. The B&O is better in Baltimore. 1. This whistle stop lost its importance a century ago. Boring, trite, and dangerously narrow streets pale in comparison to the rudeness of the locals, who feel compelled to create a small-town feel by being overly familiar with strangers. We were yelled at, approached repeatedly by complete strangers, and criticized while trying to park in the "city's" minimal parking. This whistle stop on the B&O is easily outdistanced by the Baltimore B&O museum. Totally forgettable, and avoidable. Skip it.
