Summer on the MD Eastern Shore: Must-Do Activities 

Check out some of our favorite things to do in summer on MD Eastern Shore! 

Stroll Through Downtown Rock Hall 

shopping downtownIf you want to embrace the small-town feel of Rock Hall, head to Main Street and spend the day checking out local businesses. You’ll find unique shops (we love Hickory Stick and Smilin’ Jake’s), the notable Mainstay music venue, Chester River Kayak Adventures, and more. Head to Java Rock Coffeehouse for a pick-me-up or Get the Scoop if you’re craving a refreshing ice cream cone 

Hit the Beach 

Why should you travel all the way to Ocean City or Bethany Beach just to sit on a crowded beach? In Rock Hall, we have plenty of significantly less overcrowded beaches, and they’re just as much fun. Rock Hall Beach offers a quaint strip of shoreline surrounded by stone barriers on each end, making you feel as if you’ve entered a secluded cove. The stones protect the waters, making it a calm beach ideal for swimming, especially for younger children. If you’re looking for a livelier beach, head to Tolchester Beach, which features a full-service tiki bar and live music during the summer months.   

Dine at Waterman’s Crab House 

No summer trip to the Maryland Eastern Shore is complete without indulging in steamed blue crabs. One of our favorite local spots to enjoy these delicacies is Waterman’s Crab House. Sit outside and gaze out at the Chesapeake Bay and order their Crab Feast, which includes Maryland steamed crabs, corn, and coleslaw. 

Visit the Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge 

Our inn is surrounded by breathtaking nature, and we’re less than 10 minutes away from the Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge. Take a day and explore the trails of this gorgeous park and keep your eyes peeled for migratory birds. During the summer, young eagles learn to fly and fledge from the nest, and butterfly numbers and diversity reach their peak.
