Drove down to Tilghman Island from St Michaels really not much to see when you get there except the fleet of boats and the Chesapeake Bay.

Not a whole lot to see, but a lovely drive and step back into a quiet way of life. Water views all around. A trip up and down the island doesn't take long, but it's worth it.

This is a well kept secret of the Eastern Shore. We visited when we were in Saint Michael's, and they've done so much in a short time. If you want to know the history of Tilghman, you've got to stop here and enjoy the Museum....More
