Saint Michaels, known also as St Michaels, is a port town located in Talbot County, Maryland, USA. The town covers a total area of approx 3,24 km2 (1,25 ml2) and has population of around 1,000 people (2010 census).
- Saint Michaels lies in a narrow and long neck of land along Miles River. The town is a popular tourist attraction, with high quality hotels, seafood restaurants, inns and gift shops. Tourboat cruises link the town with Annapolis across Chesapeake Bay. The for-pay public ferryboat service offered in nearby Bellevue also takes passengers across Tred Avon river to Oxford.
- The town derives its name from an Episcopal Parish established here in 1677. The church drew settlers who engaged in ship building and tobacco growing.
- Although the tourist industry in St Michaels has roots in the middle of the 19th century with steamboats bringing passengers from Baltimore to the town, as well as with summer guest cottages for weeklong rentals beginning, tourism was not a major part of the economy until the 1970s. The opening of a maritime museum in 1965 started the impetus. A tour boat and waterfront seafood restaurant followed prior to the end of the decade.
- One of the chief attractions of St Michaels is mainly the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, situated on land that was previously occupied by a cannery and seafood packing houses. Saint Michaels is home to several historic bay ships, including the bugeye Edna E.Lockwood, which is a National Historic Landmark, and a number of skipjacks.
