For a limited time, local businesses are teaming up to offer discounted rates and exclusive perks only to Tubman Travel Package travelers.

What the Tubman Travel Package includes:

  • Exclusive savings on two nights of lodging with five different accommodations to choose from, including Maryland’s best waterfront resort, hotels, and charming bed-and-breakfasts. Reserve your spot.
  • $100 worth of vouchers to use as you would a gift card for select dining, outdoor adventures, tours, or shopping. See the options.

While you’re here, be sure to visit the acclaimed Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center, which opened in 2017 and has drawn 100,000 visitors from every U.S. state and 60 countries. Also don’t miss the beautiful Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge nearby. They’re both part of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway, a scenic driving tour of 36 sites on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The area is also known for delicious local seafood.
