Cambridge named one of “15 Top Small Towns to Visit” by Smithsonian

Cambridge was just named one of 15 “Best Small Towns to Visit in 2019” by Smithsonian Magazine! As the magazine explains, “the small towns we’ve chosen for our ‘Best of 2019’ have a compelling reason to visit this year in particular.” For Cambridge, it’s about the Underground Railroad. “With this year marking the 170th commemoration of Tubman’s self-liberation, Cambridge’s Harriet Tubman Museum and Educational Center has debuted a new exterior mural of the leading abolitionist that’s already gone viral; and the byway’s Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center and State Park, about 10 miles south of Cambridge, will be debuting a new orientation film, Harriet Tubman: Soldier of Freedom, that will also coincide with the release of Focus Feature’s major motion picture, Harriet, this fall.” The magazine also points out the town’s maritime heritage. Visitors can watch watermen bring in their catch, visit the Choptank River Lighthouse, or join a sail on the skipjack Nathan of Dorchester. And then there are the restaurants, brewery, and art galleries. Read the story.
