Take a Hike, Help a Merchant

As my HoCo loco blogging brethren, HoCo Rising and HowChow have already pointed out; things have been a little rough for the merchants of Main Street in Ellicott City lately. If ever there was a time they could use a little love it would be now. The disruption in business from the massive cleanup of Monday’s train derailment is just the latest in a series of unfortunate events to befall the merchants in the old mill town.

Helping them out could actually be good for your health too. The upper part of Main Street is still very accessible with plenty of parking in lots D, E and F. Parking at the top of the hill and then walking down to the shops and pubs at the lower end of the street is a nice bit of exercise. On your return trip back up the hill you could even reward yourself with some of that awesome ice cream from Scoop Ahh Dee Doo.

That of course would likely negate any of the health benefits from the hike but at least you’ll feel better for doing so.
