Hike, History & Hops: Family Fun Day Trip to Historic Ellicott City
Searching for an easy, kid-friendly day trip destination from Route 1 and D.C. that combines your love of hiking and history with my love of craft beer? 😉 Then head to Maryland’s Historic Ellicott City for a leisurely hike along the #9 Trolley Trail, take the detour to the Benjamin Banneker Historical Park & Museum in Oella for some history about Mr. Banneker (astronomer, farmer, mathematician and a subject of Stevie Wonder’s song, “Black Man” 🎵); then jump back on the trail and back to Ellicott City for some food and craft beer at a local restaurant (like Manor Hill Tavern or Ellicott Mills Brewing Company). Great day out with (or without!) the kids and less than an hour from Route 1 / DC area. 👊
