2 Best Sights in Crisfield, The Eastern Shore

J. Millard Tawes Museum & Visitor's Center

There is not a lot to do in town, but to learn about its history, stop by this center operated by the Crisfield Heritage Foundation. Guided tours of Crisfield are run from here; from May through October the tours include a visit to a crab processing plant.

Smith Island Sweet Shoppe

Don't skip the area's nationally known cakes—stacked eight to 10 layers high and frosted—and recently designated Maryland's state cake by lawmakers. (They can be purchased in person or online.)
