This is a worthwhile excursion. Old Chesapeake Bay workboats, restored lighthouses, historical exhibits, lots of interesting factoids. Boatbuilding examples, model making, lots of other interactive exhibits to see. Highly recommend this for anyone interested in boats, Chesapeake Bay, or maritime history.

Wonderful town to visit rain or shine, summer , fall, spring. Beautifully kept up residences and colorful shops . Friendly people, nice choice of food locations and gift shops. Plenty of Pokémon stops and Pokes in a small area to keep anyone occupied.
