Crisfield could become a great town one day. Right now, unless you work on the water, it's just not.
crisfield has nothing to do for young people. its really a retirement place where people can do nothing other then stuff on the water. there isnt even a good beach in crisfield. they only have two fast food places and everything closes at 10 pm.
