The Baltimore Sun’s weekend in St. Michaels

To add to the list of high praise for St. Michaels, The Baltimore Sun has published a great review of the towns attractions, offering visitors a ready-made itinerary for a weekend getaway.

The quaint town of St. Michaels offers an irresistible dichotomy as soon as you hit its main drag, Talbot Street.

Busiest on weekends during warm months, St. Michaels wears its rich history as a shipbuilding hub on its sleeve, but in recent years, it has also embraced businesses and events that are drawing a younger crowd to the Eastern Shore town, about a 90-minute drive from Baltimore. An array of outdoor activities adds to the appeal, too.

St. Michaels makes Washingtonian’s “Great Small Towns” list

Washingtonian magazine recently published a list of 27 “great small towns” near Washington, D.C. We weren’t surprised that St. Michaels made the cut.

The write-up on St. Michaels notes that the town doesn’t have any chain stores, making it a “shopping mecca.” Here’s what else they had to say:

Readers of USA Today recently named this Eastern Shore community one of the top ten coastal towns in America. Sure, it won the accolade because it’s beautiful and historic, and because its restaurants, such as the Crab Claw (304 Burns St.; 410-745-2900) and the new Awful Arthur’s (402 S. Talbot St.; 410-745-3474), are great for fresh seafood. But many people come just to shop. The town has not a single chain store; instead, it’s home to indie boutiques including SilvaWear, which offers affordable handmade jewelry; Come by Chance, selling statement pieces for beachy homes; and Simpatico, which imports Italian ceramics. Even the drugstore, Pemberton Pharmacy, has a large selection of Lilly Pulitzer accessories and other charming gifts.

St. Michaels named one of 14 tiny East Coast towns to visit

Last week, Buzzfeed and BP teamed up to publish a list of 14 East Coast towns to visit. Unsurprisingly, St. Michaels, Md., made that list.

Here’s what they had to say:

Dating back to the mid-1600s, St. Michaels is a slice of history before your eyes. Rich in attractions and diversity, this beach town boasts a blend of Colonial and Victorian homes, churches, museums, art galleries, and some of the best crab legs you can find on the East Coast. With a heavy focus on tourism, this East Coast getaway is perfect for any food lover or history buff.

We’ll take that endorsement! Someone has to tell the folks at Buzzfeed that no one orders crab legs on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, though; we eat the whole crab!
