End of the road

There is nothing at the end of the road on Tilghman Island except a fabulous view. Drive out for a peaceful panorama of water and trees.

It was pretty in a stark sort of way on a chilly showery April day. We saw a fox and an endangered Delmarva squirrel and had a brief walk along the shore. We weren't expecting much so were very happy with the experience.

Nice views by the Naval lab. Fun watching the container ships. Wild life everywhere. Nice little spot to slow down and enjoy life.

It's all about the views of the Chesapeake, but there wasn't much to do. Pretty for a drive. We also stopped by the grocery store and bought some of the yummy cookies.

Wife & I spent the weekend in St Michaels last fall. Though we had to leave for home on Sunday, it was such a nice day outside that we decided to find a place for a few hours of kayaking. The hotel staff highly recommended Tilghman Island Marina which was only a short drive from SM. So we loaded up... More

Took a drive here. Absolutely beautiful. Very cold & windy day, to my surprise we saw deer on our way. Drove all around, very quaint.

Harrison's seafood restaurant has great food and a fabulous setting on the water. Perfect for big groups, it is a large place.

Visited with friends who keep their boat in the Marina. The island is a step back to the fishing heritage that started with. There is still a working fishing fleet, a couple of nice marinas, a few fun restaurants and The Book Bank ... An amazing book store, owned by a delightful couple who have created a book lovers refuge... More

If you're looking for a place to enjoy the world in its purest form, Tilghman Island is the place for you. Soaring views of the bay and Choptank river, along with tons of walking trails/areas and some preserve areas, make this place an untouched gem. If you're looking for shops or great places to eat, you should head back to... More

I liked that it was quaint, isolated,with nature all around. There wasn't anything I disliked. We rode all the way to the point on a dirt road where the Black Walnut Inn sits completely isolated and overlooking the Chesapeake.
