Nicknamed the “the town that fooled the British” - after being forewarned of an impending British attack during the War of 1812, the town residents raised lanterns into the trees above the town to create a diversion, and the town was spared - St. Michaels had a booming shipbuilding and seafood processing industry in the 1800s and early 1900s.

Located just minutes from Harbourtowne Resort, St. Michaels oozes the vibrancy and charm of a 19th-century seaport, complete with winding cobblestone and brick-lined walkways, centuries-old Victorian homes and beautiful views from every corner.

One of the city’s main attractions is the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, a vast 16-acre complex that features a variety of exhibits that explore and showcase the history and traditions of the Chesapeake Bay area. Visitors to the museum can enjoy a variety of events and festivals throughout the year, including horse-drawn carriage rides, bay cruises in a sail-powered skipjack, rides on the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry, and Big Band concerts under the stars.

Other exciting attractions and activities include the Lyon Distilling Company, Maryland’s premier small-batch craft distillery where visitors can sample some of the region’s best rum and whiskey and the St. Michaels Winery, which is home to some of Maryland’s best wines. The 1879 Hooper Strait
Lighthouse offers visitors the chance to experience a day in the life of a lighthouse keeper and Tilghman Island is a historic island in the heart of Chesapeake Bay. The St. Michaels Museum captures the legend and lore of old St. Michaels with a range of excellent exhibits and displays.
