St. Michaels, MD

St. Michaels is a small resort town on Maryland's Eastern Store.

It's a wonderful place to spend a quiet weekend or take a day trip.

St. Michaels was known as "the town that fooled the British" in the War of 1812, after strategically placing lanterns in the trees which cause the British to overshoot and miss the town.

There is no shortage of seafood in St. Michaels...

and plenty of sightseeing & shopping to be had.

Jimmy and Sook has a store in St. Michaels and I just love their new custom crab pieces from Smathers & Branson.

My boyfriend & I sailed to St. Michaels a few summers ago for a nice long weekend. Easy to get a slip for the weekend, loved the town & had a great time. That was probably my fave trip on the Chesapeake!

It has been too long since I went to St. Michaels. One of my best college friends grew up there and one of my favorite things to do is go up for a long weekend and enjoy the countryside as it is so pretty. I'd love to retire there in that scenic quiet area... although winters def can be harsh!!

Smathers and Branson was just at my sons' school book fair. SUCH CUTE STUFF!!! I could go a little crazy with all their designs on belts, keychains, etc...

Have a great day!
