Gather your gal-pals and head to Talbot County, Maryland for a weekend or whole week of rekindling your friendships. With Chesapeake Bay views and cool breezes, you and your friends will have a beautiful backdrop for which to retell old stories and build new ones for lasting memories. Here’s our suggestions on how to spend the time:
Where to Stay
Together in One Space
Rent a spectacular home on the water so you can stay up late to watch favorite movies and cook your own Maryland Crab Feast.
Separate but Together
Let someone else take care of the little things, our quaint B&Bs have cozy rooms and grand breakfasts, or book a block of rooms at one of our stylish, full-service hotels.
Where to Eat
Cheers to Friendship!
Toast your reunion with a refreshing glass of something! Talbot County boasts many great spots for wine, beer, and spirits tastings, tempting cocktails, and maybe a little music.
Dig Into a Crab Feast
The Eastern Shore is all about eating Maryland’s Blue Crabs. Order a bushel for the table to share! Along with sides of corn-on-the-cob and Cole slaw, it’s a fun way to experience the bounty of the Bay. No into cracking crabs? There are so many options for whatever you all are craving.

In this case, some relaxation and retail therapy! In St. Michaels, stroll Talbot Street for some of the best eclectic boutiques and shops on the Eastern Shore or visit the Inn at Perry Cabin’s full service spa.
