Some call Ellicott City a haunted town. A community of steep, sloping streets tightly lined with wooden buildings, the area’s appearance does lend itself to a fair share of ghost tales, but you'll have to decide for yourself. However, despite its history, Ellicott City is a perfect blend of antiquated and modern. The historic town is located near central Maryland only 25 minutes' drive away from Baltimore. It’s also close to many rural settings. This makes Ellicott City the perfect place to rent an RV and explore all that Maryland has to offer.
Ellicott City is home to Patapsco Valley State Park.

The park boasts approximately 200 miles of multi-purpose trails which meander through dense woodlands, along rushing water, and around exposed rocks.
