The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway is a 125-mile, self-guided driving tour through the beautiful landscape Harriet Tubman once called home.

With 36 sites to explore, the byway lets visitors take an inspiring journey through Maryland's Eastern Shore. From the plantation where Tubman worked to the general store where she committed her first act of defiance, guests can stand where Tubman and other freedom-seekers once stood and experience a piece of history.
