Havre de Grace's shops are about 7 blocks north of the promenade. Though it can be a pleasant walk along tree-lined Union Avenue or Market Street, it might be worth driving the short distance if it's a sultry day. Parking is free but limited to 2 hours.

Antiques shops dot Franklin and Washington streets. For furniture, stop at Bayside Antiques, 232 N. Washington St. (tel. 410/939-9397). Decoy fans will want to stop at Vincenti Decoys, 353 Pennington Ave. (tel. 410/734-7709). Chocolates are made on the premises at family-owned Bomboy's Home Made Candy, 329 Market St. (tel. 410/939-2924; www.bomboyscandy.com) and ice cream is served in their shop across the street. Pencilworks Gallery, 201 St. John St. (tel. 410/942-0040), offers the creations of local artisans, including jewelry, photography, and paintings.
