Black Walnut Point Inn – Gay Owned Tilghman Island B&B

Author: , March 2nd, 2019

Black Walnut Point Inn

By any measure, Tilghman Island’s Black Walnut Point is unique. A private gate secures the half-mile drive through fifty seven acres of bird sanctuary before it emerges at our six-acre island of lawn. When the sun rises over the broad mouth of the Choptank River and sets over the length of Chesapeake Bay, guests enjoy wind, waves and endless water views.

We even have a pair of nesting eagles, osprey and black ducks, as well as migrating butterflies, water fowl and song birds. You might even see bay dolphins, skates and schools of bluefish, and the back dock overlooking the cove is an ideal location for watching the herons fish.

At night the sky is full of stars, another surprise of nature, making Black Walnut Point a quiet, secret, peaceful place – just an hour’s drive from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

Visiting the Charm City – Queer Baltimore

Author: , December 22nd, 2017

Queer Baltimore

Baltimore has a lot to offer the LGBT visitor and is often ignored due to the proximity to its neighbor, Washington, D.C.

However, Baltimore is a real city and a historical one at that, having been founded in 1729. There’s lots to see and it’s very walkable. Like many cities these days, you do have to be on guard and stay on certain streets.

Getting There

The L Line light rail from the airport to downtown takes 30 minutes and is just $1.85.

You will find the Link L light rail station at the northern end of the terminal.

BWI Airport is a Southwest hub so there are lots of cheap air fares on all the airlines. You can also take Amtrak to Baltimore or even BWI. MARC and Amtrak trains can bring you up from D.C. if you want to visit both cities or even continue on up to Philadelphia or New York.
