Perhaps the most famous Talbot County town, St. Michaels, has a robust historic district and waterfront. Eclectic shops, crab houses, gourmet and inspired restaurants, and marinas all comingle with the Miles River in the background to create a perfect picture of how small-town living should feel. The town proper offers various historically important homes, cottages, or renovated properties, while the outskirts offer some of the East Coasts' most desirable estate properties. There are also family neighborhoods and golf and water access communities.
