St. Michaels

St. Michaels is a quaint and waterfront town including many marinas and numerous restaurants and shops. It is a popular travel destination by boat and by car. St. Michaels is also known as “The Town that Fooled the British” During the early morning hours of August 10th, 1813, British barges off the coast of St. Michaels planned an attack on the town and a harbor fort. The people of St. Michaels got word of the impending attack and hoisted lanterns high up onto the masts of their sailboats and into the tops of trees. The high lights caused the attacking British to overshoot the town. Visit Chesapeake Bay Maritime to learn all about what this area was and has become. St. Michaels offers hunting, fishing, golfing, and boating throughout the year!

You won’t be disappointed with what St. Michaels has to offer. Both casual and decadent dining options, multiple cozy places to stay overnight, and there are plenty of things to plan for the day.
