The Reedville Fishermen's Museum is located in the center of the town's historic district. The museum has a nice collection of traditional Chesapeake Bay work boats.
While at the museum, pick up a copy of the Reedville Walking Tour brochure. The tour describes the turn-of-the-century Victorian homes which line Main Street.
Reedville is also home to the Smith Island and Tangier Island Cruise boats. The Smith Island Cruise departs from the Chesapeake Bay Camp - Resort, the Tangier Island Cruise leave from Buzzard's Point Marina. The boats operate from the beginning of May through mid October. They leave Reedville at 10:00am and return at 3:45pm. These isolated island towns are worth a visit and the cruise across the Chesapeake Bay is enjoyable.
