Re: 1st time going to DC. Going Sailing!! What to do?
For 8-10 days, setting off from HHS, I'd head over to Oxford first, across the bay. The Robert Morris House is there. This is the home of one of the financiers of the American Revolution. The home is mostly original and intact. It's a lovely B&B and restaurant. It's a beautiful little town full of history.
After a day and a night in Oxford, de-camp and move back out into the Choptank River and head north into San Domingo Creek. This is the "back door" to St. Michael's and it's very close to Oxford. Anchor out again. Enjoy the plethora of restaurants and some good tourism. All in walking distance of each other, there is a brewery, winery and distillery where you can enjoy some taste testing.
After a day and a night in St. Michael's via San Domingo Creek, head out to the Choptank again, and into the bay and head north to Annapolis.
You can get a slip at the town marina in Ego Alley, but be advised that the place is noisy, especially in the morning when all the delivery trucks arrive to re-supply all the eateries.
A better option for a peaceful night's sleep, is to rent a mooring ball and dinghy in or use the water-taxi.
