Things to do in St. Michaels

Hi, My husband and I are going to St. Michaels for the first time this week (Sunday night to Tuesday) and I am wondering about day activities. What is there to do for a relaxing time, but not doing absolutely nothing? Thanks is advance!

Seems like it is too late to ask that question now. What do you like? biking? boating? hiking? St Michael's itself is a cute little town with lots of shopping experiences for the landlubber. We day trip frequently and our usual "activity" is to have drinks overlooking the harbor. I suggest looking at the St Michael's website. http://stmichaelsmd.org/

There is a cool Maritime Museum there by The Crab Claw. If you like to wine taste, we enjoyed wine tasting at a small winery there, also. Key Lime Cafe is a nice little place for a meal in St. Michaels.

Happy Travels! :)

I will second St. Michael's Winery, fun place to go. There is also a brewery that does beer tastings. You can stroll around and look at the shops, maybe take a bike ride. Our favorite restaurant there is Ava's Pizzeria and Wine Bar, really good gourmet pizzas.

Take the ferry from St Michaels to Oxford. If you bicycle, you can bike back. Lunch at Ava's, dinner at Theo's. None better. If you like spas try 5 Gables, but book ahead for massage. Nice, interesting shops. Particularly like Guilford and Co antique and estate jewelry. For a longer drive try Blackwater Natl Wildlife Refuge.

The Maritime Museum is good for about 2-4 hours, there you can take a boat tour. There also is a standard boat tour next to the Crab Claw We mostly visit by boat so we don’t bother. The restaurants mentioned above are all good but we don’t much care for the wine at the winery. The Crab Claw is the #1 tourist restaurant there but worth a visit, try their hard fry, it is very good.

Kayaking off of Tilghman Island is a lot of fun. You can rent a two person kayak for 2 hrs and really explore the inlets on the bay. I highly recommend this...and its not very strenous. A least not as much as you would think. I thought it to be relaxing and a very worthwhile experience. The rental shop we used gave us a map of suggested water trails.
