Calling up Ferryland on Wikipedia I see that it shares Maryland's flag and once had a bunch of Calverts and Baltimores running about. Cool!

If you are looking for a coastal location get a globe of the Earth and look along the edges of the blue colored stuff. There are lots of places. Narrowing it down is the problem.

I can recommend a wonderful, quaint picture perfect town called Southport, NC that has history, seaside restaurants, a main street filled with antique shops, mansions from the 1800s and a cemetery filled with pioneers from the 1700s. Civil war history and more. Great people. Google it and you will see what I mean. Took a great vacation there in Oct. Fell in love.

........ Maryland also borders the Atlantic. As well as the chesapeake and the potomac. For example, Ocean City is extremly costal, but when you hit july, it has about 250000 people. Towns on the eastern shore of maryland are defintly more quaint and costal like Princess anne,. md. But the eastern shore is a place you do NOT want to move to. If I were to pick any place, it would be costal maine.
