Tourist Traps are not always bad things. Sometimes they can be fun. The many shops and stores in Ellicott City are tourist traps. They exist only for the tourists walking throught the narrow streets of the town. But most of them are a lot of fun. The are full of ecletic junk! Just walking through them, talking with the owners, and perhaps finding a special treasure that you can't live without. For instance you might find this lovely poodle with beret and jewelry. Happy shopping.
Ellicott City is one of the many stops on the 'Antiquing tour' in central Maryland. My sister, Danielle, once had a small booth in one of the many Antique malls here....
I know this is weird, since I live here, but there isn't much to see. There are many residents. Compared to many other cities, Ellicott City doesn't have many shopping centers. This is many a place for people to dwell. Don't get me wrong. I love living here. It's one of the best places to live. Here, there are many things that relate to education. There's not much to see.
