Cruises to St. Michaels

About St. Michaels

St. Michael's is a small Maryland town mostly visited on Chesapeake Bay cruises. Like many towns in this region, it can claim a role in the early settlers' success during the Revolutionary War and is commonly referred to as "the town that fooled the British," because settlers successfully foiled an attack by shining lanterns at them. As the town developed it became best known for its tobacco farms and ship-building industry and to this day maintains an old-school seaport atmosphere.

While there are a few museums and galleries in St. Michael's, including the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and nearby 1879 Hooper Straight Lighthouse, some of the town's top attractions are its brewery, winery and rum distillery. Seafood lovers should also be sure to stop for a bite to eat on the pier for some of the freshest seafood around.
