This beautiful and picturesque village — dotted with pristine white clapboard buildings and picket fences — has unsurpassed views of the bay, museums, a long sandy beach, and endless ways to enjoy the water. Go splash around in the bay!
Wander the tree-lined streets to find DC inspired art, pottery, clothes, jewelry, and beach gear. Shops, restaurants, and B&Bs are tucked away in vintage homes, rustic log cabins, and old barns.
There’s more harbor-view dining here than anywhere else in the county. Enjoy a Scandinavian influenced meal, a traditional fish boil, or a simple malt and burger — as you watch the sunset over the bay.
