3: Visit an Authentic Crab Shack
Fresh blue crabs are an iconic Southern food, right up there with barbecue and sweet tea. For the freshest, head to Maryland.
We like Cantler’s Riverside Inn in Annapolis, which has been around for more than 30 years and offers fresh catch all year.
Only in the South…can you race crabs (National Hard Crab Derby in Crisfield, Maryland, on Labor Day weekend).
