St. Michaels, Maryland: Seaside Views and Maryland Blue Crabs
In addition to exuding seaside charm, the sleepy town of St. Michaels is notable for having played a starring role in a little-known episode in American history—its residents outsmarted the British during the War of 1812. The townspeople reportedly hung lanterns in trees outside of town to trick the Brits into thinking they were dramatically misfiring their cannons. The redcoats overshot and the town survived.
While you’re here, be sure to partake in the area’s rich maritime culture. Watch the ships gliding by on the Chesapeake Bay and try some of Maryland’s famous blue crabs. For an in-depth look at the town’s history, visit the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum or take an educational sailing tour on the H.M. Krentz skipjack, which departs right from the museum.
