Need Marylander help (Easton, St. Michaels, somewhere else?)

I'm planning a full day trip (approx 200 miles each way from SE VA). I'll be riding two up (I've done a long two up ride before), and I'd like to go somewhere nice/quaint/pretty. I'm thinking Easton or St. Michaels, but I'm all ears on anywhere else. If anybody has any thoughts on things to do, see, eat, I'd be much obliged. I'm hoping to also find a place to stop on the way up and on the way back that fits that same description.

wifey, me and another couple did a trip( both 2 up) through that part of MD in 2005. took the CBBT up and over, had a fun time. did the back roads, hopped the Whitehaven ferry and then the Oxford-Bellevue ferry. stayed in St Michaels and had a nice meal.

completed the loop from Richmond by going over through Annapolis, stopping for lunch and returning this side of the river

have fun!!! it is a good trip!!

There won't be an overnight involved this trip.

I like the idea of completing the loop through Annapolis though.

I also recomend St Michaels. I used to take the boat there for long weekends and stay at one of the marinas. Its a pretty town with lots to see.

Weekend or weekday?

You will see a lot of traffic/people in St. Micheals and Easton, and a lot of traffic on Kent Island and around Annapolis on the weekends.

^ This. Especially if you do the loop over the Bridge to the western shore.

Cambridge is a "nice/quaint/pretty" town also.

The ride to the end of Hooper Island is nice and Blackwater NWR is on the way. The ride to Tilghman Island on past St. Micheals is good too.

But you wont have time for any of that if you only do a day trip.

Weekend.
I might save the loop across the bridge for another time.

If we hit the road at 8am, should have time for at least some of that, right?
