Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 282

I heart Ellicott City

Columbia, MD. It’s new and based on a plan. It’s good. I like it.
Next door?
Ellicott City, MD. It’s old and not based on a plan. It’s fabulous. I love it.

I do, it’s like having old America next door to new America.

Look, people dressed up in oldy-worldy stuff in Ellicott City!

I love the old shops.
I love the raggedy streets.
I love the history.
I love the restaurants.
I love that it’s quirky.
I love the Main Street.
I love the culture.
I love the events.
I love the sense of community.

I heart Ellicott City :)

I heart Ellicott City πŸ™‚

Tomorrow I’m going to an event in Ellicott City, hosted by Tom Coale, and I’ll be finding out what other people love about Ellicott City. I bet they love the same things I do, and more πŸ™‚

I’ve gone on quite a bit about Ellicott City. It’s the place I always take visitors, and they are always pleasantly surprised. I think I even described it once as a mini-Glastonbury! I go to Ellicott City for coffee, to find something different to wear, to buy extraordinary gifts, to eat, to potter about, to wander, to see theatre, to join in events – and to just be.

Ellicott City – share the love!

Fabulous old Main Street

    Ellicott City — sounds a bit like villages and towns in England — raggedy streets, old shops, history, quirky, culture, community….
