If you like a calm, quiet, beautiful location where even the rain isn't offensive, head to Tilghman, my aunt and uncle live down at the bottom of the island and it aches me to leave every time we head out there.

We loved the rocks and the the water. We took some beautiful pictures with ice covered rocks! Quaint town. Not alot of action but everyone is friendly.

I suppose you couldn't call it "spectacular" but what an enjoyable drive from St. Michaels to Tilghman. The houses were beautiful, but also enjoyed just looking at the water, fields, etc. Worth the drive, and had a beautiful sunset to cap it off.

The area is indeed peaceful. The scenery is the classic off the beaten path island. Yet, it is void of activity.

We visited Tilghman Island. It's beautiful to drive to the island, but then there is nothing other to do than turn around and drive back. Not worth more than an hour of your time.

We drove down the road to Tilghman Island. You leave the more developed world behind as you travel the woods and marshlands by the bay. My husband is a photographer and loved stopping to get shots of a single White House amid the fields or...More

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.

Great scenery, but be aware of the long drive and lack of noticeable restrooms! Not a lot of places spotted to park and walk either.

Although you can fish from shore/dock, best bet is to hit a place like Harrison's Country Inn .. they have experienced watermen there that will get you out on a charter boat and you WILL catch fish with their guidance (if... More
