Smith Island

Scarcely populated, this tiny island makes for an ideal excursion if you want a nitty-gritty crabbing experience. Drum Point Market is open for lunch and dinner and is said to serve the best crab cake in the world.

Where to stay: The Inn of Silent Music, 2955 Tylerton Rd.; 410/425-3541 or innofsilentmusic.com.
