A Trip to St. Michaels, Maryland

Posted on August 30, 2014
Hello Everyone! Happy Weekend! I cannot believe that this is the last weekend in August, this summer has flown by so quickly! I hope you all have a great weekend and manage to soak up all the remaining summer fun! I wanted to stop by today and share some pictures of a recent day trip we took to a quaint little historical town in Maryland, called St. Michaels. We have loved exploring this area since we moved to Maryland almost two years ago and this is one of the cutest places around! This 17th century town on the Chesapeake Bay is filled with lots of little shops, seafood restaurants, ice-cream parlors, bed & breakfasts and shops, and is definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in the area!
 .
It was a beautiful sunny day so we decided to walk around the marina first. It was pretty busy with people sailing in and out, some stopping for lunch at a popular seafood restaurant, The Crab Claw!
 .
The Crab Claw (you can check it out HERE!) sits right on the Chesapeake Bay, has seating both inside and outside and specializes in crabs! This is one of my favorite things about Maryland; all the amazing fresh seafood. If you are a seafood lover, you definitely want to come to Maryland at some point!
 .
We’ve had lots of crab cakes and crab cake sandwiches since we’ve lived in Maryland, and these were really good! Super fresh and light, and so delicious!
 .
What’s better than sitting outside on a beautiful day, eating delicious seafood, with your favorite person in the whole world?! Doesn’t get much better than that!
 .

I loved all the sweet little street signs all around the town. The main street in St. Michaels is called Talbot Street, and it’s lined with lots of nice shops specializing in all the things Maryland is known for, little antique shops, restaurants and cafes, ice-cream parlors, bed & breakfasts and inns, and old churches.
.
Here are some pictures of the main street, Talbot Street (named after Talbot County which is the county where St. Michaels is). All the buildings were decorated with beautiful plants and flowers, flags and images of crabs, of course!
More historical buildings on Talbot Street.

I loved this sign at a Bed & Breakfast called The Snuggery (which is actually the oldest residence in St. Michaels) on one of the side streets! It’s a little difficult to see in this picture, but it’s a man tipping his hat to a lady. It was so cute! I loved all the little details like this that many of the homes and buildings had, there was something to look at on every corner, and it made walking around the town so fun!

 .
We stopped by an antique shop (picture on the left) that had so many old treasures (and we may have brought one back with us!) and also a Christmas shop (because I can’t ever pass by a Christmas shop without going in!) where I saw all these Downton Abbey Christmas ornaments! (Picture on the right) They had ornaments of Highclare Castle, the cars that were driven in the later episodes of Downton, and even an ornament that looked like the bells in the servants’ hall! A dream come true for any Downton fan!

I loved these two white rocking chairs at this Bed & Breakfast! I can just imagine sitting in one of them early in the morning, sipping my English Breakfast Tea out of my favorite teacup and watching the world wake up! Sounds perfect to me. I hope you enjoyed walking through this sweet little place with me, and if you’re ever in Maryland and are looking for a nice place to visit and eat some delicious crab cakes, make sure you visit St. Michaels! You can find more information about the town and the area HERE. I hope you all enjoy your weekend, and come back soon for some fall inspired recipes and projects! Thanks for stopping by today!
