Nice layed back place to go see, but don't expect anything other than small town type atmosphere. However, GO GET SOME GREAT FOOD at Harrisons. All the people in the know go there. Crabs are running fantastic right now. Buffet is good and simple with wonderful fried chicken and fixins. But the AYCE Crabs are superb. And at 35 pp... More

We had a wonderful 2-hour kayaking trip. The staff was friendly and helpful. The ocean kayak was in excellent condition. We were given a "trail" map where we could visit. We enjoyed herons, egrets, osprey, and a curious gathering of cattle. Highly recommended.

Tilghman Island is a slow-paced location on MD's Eastern Shore with a lot of watermen, some good restaurants and some terrific water views. Be sure to follow the road all the way to the very end of the island for a great view of the Bay and the Choptank River.

Enjoyed being in a secluded spot at a B&B - separate review. Very few businesses on Tilghman Isle. Even in April nearby St. Michaels gets noisy. Wanted to take Ferry to Oxford, but it did not run until June.

Very rural area. Views of the water were beautiful. No shopping but an area where you could ride a bike for miles and not run into another person.

I must admit that I was almost scared off by some of the negative reviews, but it really does come down to your expectations. My family and I were looking for a nice day to enjoy the water and the kayak tour offered by the Tilghman Island Marina was perfect. We also stopped by the Book Bank as recommended and... More

Was expecting to see more. Only found docks and fishing charters. Nice drive but could have been skipped.
