This is a beautiful waterside village. Only a few restaurants. Nice to drive through and see the houses. Rebecca TRaurk is an awesome, relaxing and educational sail on an antique skipjack!

There wasn't much to do in the public area other than a good view. Stayed in the car caise it was very buggy by the rocks. Nice view and not crowded.

We made a trip down to see St. Michael's for the day and since we were already down there we made the drive to Tilghman Island. It is a nice drive. Not much down there but the scenery was pretty.

We'd never visited this part of the eastern shore and were lucky enough to spend 7 days exploring it on bikes and kayaks. We were mesmerized by the birdwatching and the beauty of the nature.
