5 Places to visit in St. Michaels, MD

Posted on Posted in Everything Else, Trips in Eastern United States

We recently visited St. Michaels, MD for the very first time. It’s only a couple of hours away from Baltimore, and we’ve heard so often about how beautiful it is. Since Bran and I are on tight budgets, we wanted to make sure our little day trip didn’t break the bank. We found some great places to visit there – from great food to niche shops and scenic views. Here are some places you need to check out on your next trip to St. Michaels.

1. Crepes by the Bay

At first, this place looks like a hole-in-the-wall diner. This was probably my favorite place in the area to eat though! Crepes by the Bay has an enormous selection of yummy crepes. I ordered the banana and nutella crepe, which was absolutely heavenly!  We all enjoyed our food and it was very reasonably priced. I highly recommend you check them out.

The Christmas Shop Ornaments - St. Michaels, MD3.  The Christmas Shop

This might seem like a strange recommendation, but I really loved coming here!  Bran had to talk me into it at first because I felt it was too early to be looking at Christmas ornaments, but this shop was fantastic.  They have any kind of ornament you can imagine!  I even bought myself 2 ornaments- a Beetle and a camera.  Perfect, right?

4. Foxy’s Harbor GrilleKey Lime Pie drink - Foxy's Harbor Grille

Foxy’s is a little bar/restaurant that sits right on the water.  The menu is somewhat limited but the food is good.  Their menu consists of “island” types, ranging from dishes like fish tacos, crab cakes, and jerk burgers.  We also had great service there – which is always a plus.

TIP: Try the key lime pie drink!  It’s amazing!

Hooper Strait Lighthouse at night5. Hooper Strait Lighthouse

We sort of stumbled upon the Hooper Strait lighthouse as we were browsing the town.  We knew it was around, we just didn’t know exactly where.  When we found it, I knew it would allow for beautiful photos.  The lighthouse is a gorgeous structure with an abundance of history.  Supposedly you can only visit the lighthouse with paid admission into the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, but we didn’t know that.  The gate was open when we arrived and people were freely walking in and out of the area.  However, be aware that you might have to visit the rest of the museum to see the lighthouse!
