Arguably, this is St. Michael's non-flaunty neighbor. It is a sleepy town at lands end. We came in the evening so most of the few businesses here were already closed. Still, it is worth a look for its prime coastal views of the Chesapeake bayfront.

Quoting another reviewer there--but once I saw their title I could think of no other/more informative way to put it. A few very nice B&B's, one motel, a dilapidated Inn for fishermen, and surprisingly few dining options. "Rustic", would be a good word for it. That said, there's a wonderful little market/deli place on the main road from which to... More

We drove to the end of the inlet. However, there's not much to see once you get to Tilghman Island. We just turned around and drove back. However, if you enjoy sitting and watching the water, then you might enjoy.

Drove through, stopped for lunch. Looked for something to keep us there longer - couldn't find anything. Returned to St Michaels.

Not much to see. Nothing to do. Went all the way to the tip of the island through a chain link fence. Sat on some rocks and watched the boats and sailboats. Was well worth the hour spent taking in the sea breeze and soaking in the sun.

We took a quick trip out to Tilghman and just walked around the rocks at the very end of the main road.

There really isn't any big attraction here except for a pleasant drive and water views. We were able to find a place to park and walk out onto a dock that had a nice view of the bay. It is very different from St. Michaels so please don't go expecting anything like a tourist town. But, everyone we spoke with... More

We decided to drive down from St Michaels to see the view of the bay and seabirds. Parked in the marked public lot and started walking, and walking and walking. Nothing to see, no shoulder along the road to walk on while cars were speeding along the road... To where? Walked back to our car and drove down to the... More

We thought there would be more to do or see on Tilghman Island. All we saw was million dollar houses.
