What a wonderful secret... This environment soothes the soul. Not much was open a must to visit in the summer
Just drove thru and there wasn't anything that made us want to get out and explore. We had eaten already so we pass by the few restaurants we came upon. Didn't see any stores, museums or artist studios.
While visiting St. Michael's, Maryland, our family made the 'road-less-traveled' trip to Tilghman Island for the day. While one visitor remarked 'there's not much to do unless you like to fish,' keep in mind that's exactly the reason others may love this quaint, still untouched by progress place. You can make the drive to the furthest point of land and... More
We recently visited the island on Tilghman Day which falls on the 3rd Saturday in October. This is an annual event to raise money for the fire house. If you love oysters, crab cakes and assorted sea food specialties this is the place. We witnessed various events such as anchor tossing, oyster shucking, boating contests, etc. while enjoying some of... More
While on Tilgman Island don't miss Phillips Wharf Environmental Center. Where else can you dip your hand in an oyster tank or pet a puffer puff! Lots of interesting live displays including oyters, puffer fish, horseshoe crabs and turtles. Picturesque setting right on the water not too far from the drawbridge.

The views of the Bay are beautiful and it is nice to just sit and relax, but there isn't much else to do on Tilghman, unless you are into fishing. There are I think about... More
Typical Eastern Shore town which harkens back several decades. What a delight to see all the working watermen and boats. it was a visit to my childhood. Time locked in the best way.
Follow the road to the end, pull up a chair and enjoy the view and the lapping of the waves. Feel fortunate to have riven down to the end of the road, worth the trip!
On our second day visiting St. Michael's we decided to return to the Drawbridge for a relaxing meal and drinks. The food is always good, althought a bit pricey....I guess the extra is for the water-front view and ability to watch the draw-bridge! All-in-all, worth the drive and price. We will return.
We were in St Michaels and just wanted to see the "authentic" old fashioned "fishing village" area. The drawbridge was up when we went over to the island and it was up again when we returned....but I doubt it is ever up for too long. The ride was interesting with both the agriculture and fishing...and what looks like the new... More
