Rock Hall is a quiet, out-of-the-way little town on Chesapeake Bay with a working community of Eastern Shore Watermen dating back to the 19th century and a modern sailing community. It's a pleasant place to come for a respite from the pressures and fast pace of modern America and an ideal place for a sailing vacation. There is no public transportation to Rock Hall.
