The small waterfront town of Saint Michaels is in the Chesapeake Bay and it's home to pretty marinas as well as some historic architecture, a strong maritime history and many shops, restaurants and popular places to relax.
Begin by exploring the town with a walking tour of the historical buildings. Pick up a map at the St. Mary’s Square Museum between Mulberry Street and East Chestnut Street and stroll through the town’s historic streets, lined with 18th and 19th-century houses and stores. You can also see St. Michaels and the surrounding area by boat with various chartered tours, for a different view of the town from the water plus some insight into local nature and wildlife.
An important attraction in town is the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Here you can see items related to Chesapeake Bay's commercial fishing industry and navigation. The museum incorporates the Hooper Straight Lighthouse and a cannery warehouse, plus a large collection of sail, power and row boats.
You can also rent bicycles to explore the surrounding country roads, or kayaks and paddle boards for fun on the water. With several breweries and a winery in town plus a local farmers market and numerous restaurants, you can discover new tastes and relax with some excellent cuisine.
If you visit in late spring or early summer you will fall in love with this beautiful sailing town with its mild temperatures, coastal views and welcoming atmosphere.
