Cooler temperatures are signaling that the end of summer is nearing. With such beautiful weather, let's embrace it and enjoy this weekend's outdoor events.
One way to do that is to take a special Sunday morning cruise across the Chesapeake Bay. Deploying from Annapolis City Dock, Cruises on the Bay provides you with the chance to enter St. Michaels by water and explore the historic city for three hours of shopping, seafood, and historic sites. A ticket for this cruise offers a complimentary admission to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, a non-alcoholic beverage and a donut. Cash beverage and snack service is available on board. Tickets are $72 for adults and $30 for children 12 and under. Explore cruisesonthebay.com for more details.
Also on the Eastern Shore, the Queen Anne's County Fair at the 4-H Park in Centreville is coming to a close so what better way to spend part of your weekend than to enjoy it?
