Hints on Where to Find These Maryland Icons in Talbot County

  1. Black-Eyed Susan: It’s not quite the season yet, but stop in the souvenir shops of Easton, Oxford, or St. Michaels and you’ll find a gift with an image of the bright yellow flower upon it.
  2. Crabs: Get them fresh-from-the-Bay at any of our seafood restaurants or markets.
  3. Smith Island Cake: Order a slice at Sugar Buns Airport Café.
  4. Cows and Dairy Farms: Good cheese needs happy cows, like the ones at Chapel’s Creamery or the Belted Galloways (Oreo cows) at Cookes Hope Road off Rt. 333!
  5. Horses: Enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride through the beautiful streets of downtown of Easton.
  6. Maryland Flag: Drive through any picturesque neighborhood in our towns and you’ll find a flag waving, or snap a shot with the Frederick Douglass Statue at the Talbot County Courthouse 11 N. Washington Street.
  7. Lighthouse: Grab a pic of the Hooper Strait Lighthouse at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
  8. Oriole Bird: This is a good time to get a glimpse of an Oriole. They like to perch in tree tops and flit through the upper foliage in search of insects. Walk one of our parks or trails to get your shot.
  9. Skipjack: You’ll find a Skipjack and other boat style boats at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
  10. Orange Crush Cocktail or Mocktail: Order yours at Foxy’s Grille beside St. Michaels Harbor.

Have Fun!
