All About the Best Getaway From Philadelphia
Let’s Hit the Road
Rock Hall is the perfect, relaxing weekend getaway from Philadelphia. It’s less than a 2-hour drive and avoids the heavy traffic of the Baltimore and Washington D.C. area. You’ll take I-95 South to US-301. You’ll stay on US-301 for about 48 miles before you take MD-291 West. Follow that route for about 47 miles, then turn onto Main Street in Rock Hall. You’ve arrived!
Have you ever indulged in the famous Maryland blue crabs? The peak season to enjoy this delicacy is April through November. The juicy meat from these tasty creatures is used to make crabcakes, crab soup, crab sandwiches, and more, but we love to “pick” the steamed crabs. You’ll grab a whole steamed crab that’s been covered in seafood seasoning (Old Bay is a local favorite). Then you pick through parts of the crab and take out the sweet crab meat. Support local Rock Hall business and treat yourself to Maryland crabs at Waterman’s Crab House or Chester River Seafood.
Relax On the Beach
When you get away from Philadelphia, you’ll want to be sure to avoid crowded, touristy beaches, such as Rehoboth Beach or Ocean City. When you stay at Inn at Huntingfield Creek, you’ll be close to a handful of laidback, small–town beaches. Rock Hall Beach, commonly referred to as “Ferry Park,” is a family-friendly beach featuring outstanding Chesapeake Bay views, picnic tables, barbecue stands, and covered pavilions. Just north of Rock Hall, Tolchester Beach offers a gorgeous sandy beach, a marina, and an eclectic tiki bar. The Shanty is a full-service bar that serves up mouthwatering cocktails and offers live music during the summer months.
