When you prep your boat for an outing, you fall into a routine: You untie from the moorings, step aboard, and pull the bumpers out of the water. Then, you sit behind the wheel, start the ignition, and get ready to take off across the bay to your destination.
This, however, is how you can switch up the routine: by choosing a new destination to explore!
Traveling by boat is often quicker than a trip in the car. It’s also much more scenic and adventurous to traverse the open waters. So, for your next staycation, set out toward one of these Rock Hall, MD, marinas to explore the town for the weekend. If you’re wondering where to dock and refuel as you navigate the Chesapeake Bay Area, our Vacation Guide will show you our favorite pit stops to make, including restaurants, shops, and more!
