Find a friend with a boat, load up a cooler and point your vessel in the direction of Dundalk and Middle River, where waterfront bars dot the coastline of the bay and its tributaries.

"We are a little piece of Key West in Dundalk," says Courtney Cox, manager of the Hard Yacht Cafe (pictured), where the Bear Creek Smash rum punch goes down easy and two bands play each Saturday and Sunday.
