The Area

From waterman workboats to billionaire yachts, crab shanties to 5-star restaurants, Maryland’s Eastern Shore is among the world’s treasured destinations to those who know of it. And despite a reputation as “the Hamptons of D.C.,” the charm triumvirate of Easton, St. Michaels, and Oxford somehow maintain their relatively undiscovered feel.
