Rock Hall in Southern Living Mag’s Best Small Town List

Quite a few of Chesapeake Bay’s historic little towns make assorted “Best of…” lists. Usually, it’s Chesapeake City, Annapolis, Havre de Grace or St. Michaels.

This time, Rock Hall got the nod.

Southern Living magazine.ranked Rock Hall ninth out of its 20 favorite “souths” small towns.

“Known as the “Pearl of the Chesapeake,” Southern Living writes,” Rock Hall sits directly on the upper eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, offering the quintessential Bay experience.”

People who live near Rock Hall think it’s a sleepy village until there’s one of its many festivals. But that’s what Southern Living likes about the town.

“Working fishing boats and pleasure cruisers fill the harbor; steamed crab is available everywhere; and you can even watch regattas just beyond the harbor.”

The magazine mainly features pictures of scenic homes or town square buildings from the other Best Small Towns. Its Rock Hall photo… the town’s sunset across the bay, check it out.

These Main Street towns evoke the best of what we are as a culture. They’re places with a beating heart, where tradition is the lifeblood, and neighbors gather on front porches for a glass of sweet tea.” – Southern Living Magazine
