While in Saint Michaels, we are guests at the beautiful Harbour Inn where each of our elegant rooms enjoys a beautiful view of the harbor and the Miles River and where you can opt for a relaxing spa treatment or massage so as to unwind after your day of cycling and sightseeing. While in Saint Michaels you might take the opportunity to explore the highly regarded Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum where you can learn about the history of the bay, and its traditions in boat building, commercial fishing, yachting and navigation. There are twenty-three buildings on eighteen acres with interactive exhibits, the popular Hooper Straight Lighthouses, and several historic vessels docked at the waterfront boat yard.Finally, the biking on this tour is perfectly designed for an early springtime outing.
