Summertime on the Chesapeake: St. Michael’s, Md.

ST. MICHAEL’S, MD. — The home of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, this old town that bills itself as the town that fooled the British, is now the center of one of the finest collections of Chesapeake Bay boats of all types. The museum is staffed by friendly and knowledgeable folks, mostly volunteers, who bring their own collective experience and wisdom to entertain and educate.
