Other cities/towns: St. Michaels( Jed Kirschbaum, Baltimore Sun / August 10, 2010 )
Sitting on a narrow strip of land along the Miles River, St. Michaels may be the quintessential Eastern Shore town, with its shops, inns and small-town ambience. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum offers a look into the area's seafaring past, while the nearby Oxford-Bellevue Ferry, plying the waters of the Tred Avon River as far back as 1683, is reputed to be the country's oldest privately operated ferry. --Chris Kaltenbach
