The creek has been dredged to allow pleasure craft, commercial fisherman and a few small US Navy vessels to dock in the city.The southern end of the city remains heavily wooded and is distinguished by the large sandstone cliffs called the Randle Cliffs. These cliffs, and others along the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, tower as high as 180 feet above the water and are constantly eroding due to freeze/thaw and wave action. The debris from these cliffs has formed a number of shallow sand bars which makes navigation by boat near the cliffs very difficult and the water very shallow for hundreds of yards into the Bay.Demographics2010 censusAs of the census of 2010, there were 5,753 people, 2,134 households, and 1,520 families residing in the town.
