Stopped here right after crossing the bridge to the Eastern Shore and visiting the Welcome Center. The exhibits were well done and informative and the staff was very helpful. You can explore at your own pace. It is very kid friendly too. It is definitely worth stopping for especially if you are into nature and its preservation.
And great for kids. The short hike (also accessible from the road before the bridge toll) had lots to offer, including views of the second tallest lighthouse in the US, marshlands with lots of birds and butterflies, an informative visitor center, and remnants (including cannons) of a former WWII fort. The shortness of the visit overcame the somewhat irritating noise... 更多
Great place to stop on the way up or down the Delmarva Penn. Must see the WW2 bunker that protected the east coast from the Nazi threat. Would be better if they add a real replicate of the actual gun used in harbor protection.

Excellent interactive area for kids of all ages to handle/identify turtle shells, marine life bones, fossils, shells etc. nice movie for overview of the area. Birding room with binoculars. Learn that the area is part of the migratory path of the monarch butterflies and how they are "tagged". Walking... 更多

There is a wall of windows that overlooks the refuge and several telescopes and binoculars that you can use to closely observe the wildlife. We saw a deer and various birds. There is a nice gift shop. We enjoyed it!
We were driving to the Eastern Shore and hoping we'd find a good campground for the evening. Unfortunately, as we were looking things up we could only find campgrounds that looked very commercial. When we got off the CBBT we figured this would be a good place to stop and ask questions. The visitor center itself was a nice museum,... 更多
