1. Harriet Tubman Byway
What is it? Born enslaved on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Harriet Tubman would come to be known the world over for ushering enslaved African Americans to freedom along her Underground Railroad. Spanning from Maryland to Philadelphia, this driving trail follows her path.
Why go? Tubman’s accomplishments, best described in her own words, made her a national hero: ‘I can say what most conductors can’t say – I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.’
