Parents Get Away

St. Michaels, Maryland


Talbot Street Stores and Restaurants

 

 

Looking for a get away? 

Why not try St. Michaels in Maryland.  My husband and I just had the opportunity to spend a weekend there and we really enjoyed it.  It is a leisurely drive from Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia. Located on Maryland's Eastern Shore, the town is located near other popular destinations such as Easton and Oxford  

St. Michaels is a charming, small waterfront town with one of a kind shops and a wealth of diverse restaurants.  You will enjoy strolling through the historic streets to see houses that date back to the 1700's.  The beautiful Miles River and St. Michaels Harbor offer boaters the perfect destination and non-boaters the perfect view!  

 

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum...

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and Waterfront Park is a terrific place to visit. You can enjoy the view from the Hooper Strait Lighthouse ( see picture to right), learn about oyster harvesting, visit a working boat yard and see how Maryland's natural treasures are enjoyed.  The weekend that we went the museum was the location of the 2007 Food and Wine Festival.  This was a great event that is worth attending.  Nationally acclaimed Chefs, Writers, Restaurant Owners and Wine Representatives were invited to participate.  We spent the entire day at the festival enjoying the events as well as the museum.  In addition to the festival many restaurants offered wine dinners where they had a variety of wines to complement the meal.   

Historical St. Michaels...                        

For a good orientation to St. Michaels' history, stop by the St. Mary's Square Museum between Mulberry Street and East Chestnut Street and get a St. Michaels Walking Tour brochure.  This will guide you through the historic streets of this charming town.  In addition, you can take an informative tour from the water via the Patriot, a 65-foot motorized boat.  You'll learn about the land, historic houses, waterfront estates and hard working fisherman who harvest the Maryland shores.

Accommodations...

St. Michaels offers a variety of bed and breakfast, resorts, and inns for your convenience. We stayed at the Harbourtowne Golf Resort, which is located 5 minutes outside of town on the water.  The room was adequate and the view was great.  The location may be a problem during peak season, because you would need to drive into town and may have difficulty finding parking.  We went the end of April so parking was not an issue.

Dining...

The Bistro St. Michaels, conveniently located  on Talbot Street, was our favorite restaurant.  The food and service were very good. The restaurant is a recreation of a classic Parisian Bistro. The menu had a nice variety and although they had seafood there were other options for non seafood eaters.  Reservations are highly recommended.

The other restaurant that we enjoyed was the Key Lime Cafe, located in a cottage just off of Talbot Street in the historic district. The food was good, although the service was a bit slow.  The menu was diverse with some traditional Maryland cuisine.  They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The restaurant is much nicer inside than it appears from the outside so be sure to go in an take a look. Reservations are highly recommended.

Characters restaurant on Talbot street is a great place to stop by in the evening to listen to the music.  Live bands were there on Friday and Saturday night.

The restaurants down at the waterfront, Town Dock Restaurant, St Michaels Crab and Steak House and Foxy's Marina Bar offer a spectacular harbor view and waterfront deck dining.  Menus include regional specialties and traditional favorites.

Events...

Hope you enjoy your visit!!!
