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.

Tilghman Island is 11 miles down the road from St. Michael's and a world apart. If you're a tourist and you want cute shops and fancy restaurants, you won't find them. Come here to enjoy peace and tranquility, watch the waterman make their living crabbing and fishing, or do-it-yourself when you come. I chartered a 4 hour crabbing trip thru... More

If you like fishing, this is the place to be! We basically did a drive-by and stopped and took a few pictures. Beautiful area!

... If you have the extra time. That said, I wouldn't go out of my way or miss anything else in/around St. Michaels to head here. It's a bit rundown.

We drove out to Tilghman Island to see the “scenic 12 miles” we had read about. I know the definition of scenic and this certainly was not it. Nowhere to walk around. The odd water view as you drove along. A waste of time. Road is very flat so ideal for cyclists.

Had a great time on the Lady Patty. Sailed around the bay for 2 hours. The hospitality was exceptional and day could not have been any better.

Followed 15 mile route from St Michael's. Flat and nice wide shoulders for most of ride. Beautiful views at end of island. Be sure to bring patch kit or spare tube/tire. There are no bike stores in Tilghman Island if you get a flat!

Looked so sad to see nothing has changed as time keeps moving on. Did not look to inviting. Town could use a bit of a spruce up.
