    Blue crabs are great in the fall...full and sweet. Note:the maryland crabbing season ends the end of November. Then crabs have to be shipped in from the Carolinas, Florida etc. That = higher prices.

    If you want fresh and tasty crabs. Go to Jessie's boat where the raw fish sits directly to the right of the main entrance. Then take them across the way to have them steamed there for 18 minutes.

    Nice destination to go for a stroll. Great views with cozy feeling cobblestone sidewalks. Save money by taking public transportation or ride-share. Parking is expensive!

    Parking which was always a challenge is much worse as construction has reduced the number of spaces and they are controlling access to the lot. Beware and forewarned.
