OK, it's an island in the Chesapeake Bay, connected to St. Michaels by a bridge. There are some views of the bay, some old houses and cottages, and some MacMansion developments. Admittedly, it was pouring rain when we were there, so it wasn't at its best. I particularly enjoyed the waterfowl gathered in the grassy expanses, which were flooded….

Fantastic place to go and relax, go fishing ,crabbing, or just sit back and watch the sunset over the bay. Great place, and food.

Nice to see where all the fishermen live and work and have done so for centuries. Charming church and a huge crowd for a wedding when we were there. Some interesting types of houses there also.

I did not find Tilghman Island very interesting. Its a small island that is not as quaint as I expected. I drove the length of the island expecting more of a wildlife area but there isn't much. I wished I'd gone to Easton instead.

We took a drive from St. Michaels and had been warned there was nothing going on there. It's true, only some fishing boats and a bridge so low it opens all the time for boats. It looks like there are lovely homes and places to fish but it has no shops or places to eat. Once is enough.

We didn't stop, just did a drive across the bridge and through the area. It's really lovely and I can imagine it would be pretty wild if a big storm blew through.

Captain Russell DIZE on the Riley Cat took us our at 5:30 AM for a great morning of trot line crabbing. We caught 2 bussels of crabs and had a wonderful time. Captain Dize is very knowledgable and we learned so much. Fun to watch the sun come up and go out with the other crabbers. We were amazed to... More

While staying in St. Michaels we took a morning drive to T. Island. Nothing to do or see there. Maybe there are restaurants but why bother Turned around and went back

Tilghman Island is a great mix of working waterman town and vacation spot. Great for a day trip, weekend or week-long visit. Skipjack sail or lighthouse boat trip, good restaurants, kayaking - many more things to do.

We took a day trip after spending a few days in St. Michaels. Not too much to do. When you ask locals all they say is eat, drink take a boat ride. If you are not doing one of those things its pretty boring.
