St. Michael's, MD
St. Michaels, once a shipbuilding center, is today one of the region's premier leisure-time destinations. Its ever-growing popularity has resulted in more and more shops, cafés, waterfront restaurants, and inns. In warmer months, tourists and boaters crowd its narrow streets and snug harbor. Talbot Street is lined with restaurants, galleries, and all manner of shops, including a hardware store that doubles as a retro gift shop.Stroll between Mill Street, the lane to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, and Willow Street, or head just beyond to Canton Alley Artiste Locale, Broken Rudder Sportswear, Chesapeake Trading Company, and The Minds Eye Craft Collection cut.
