  • Cool for the kids to see. Over water and tunnel experience. Highly patrolled, so watch your speed. Toll prior to entering was $21, worth the price for a beautiful day in Eastern Shored  more »
  • The Tunnel/Bridge is a marvel of engineering. The island Snack Bar and Gift Shop are currently closed.  more »
