The quaint fishing town of Rock Hall served as a focal point of watermen activity on the Chesapeake Bay for over 300 years. Although a combination of factors has greatly reduced the commercial fishing business, Rock Hall still lures pleasure boaters, fishermen and tourists to its calm waters. Local museums, historic sites, mouth-watering seafood and quaint clapboard houses combine with outstanding recreational opportunities and some of Maryland’s most well-attended shoreline festivities. Rock Hall and the surrounding “necks” are ideal for cyclists who appreciate the flat terrain and wide open spaces. Surrounded by water on three sides and locked in by farmland to the north, it would be difficult to rival Rock Hall for breathtakingly beautiful vistas.
