Description

This diminutive port on the Chesapeake has been known as St. Michaels since the early seventeenth century. The well-preserved harbor town is rich in the history of its days as a significant shipbuilding center. To experience the pleasures of this vintage community, stroll through the historic district, take a horse and buggy ride along the harbor, or cross the Tred Avon river on the oldest working ferry in the U.S. Well-known for the bounty of crab, oysters, clams, and fish harvested from the Chesapeake, this area is one of the best for succulent seafood prepared in first-class restaurants. Opportunities for boating abound. Take advantage of a cruise on the Bay for the proper perspective of this tiny but distinguished port town on the Delmarva Peninsula.
