Known as the “Black Moses,” Harriet Tubman, who herself escaped from bondage in Maryland, returned there 13 times to liberate others and escort them north to freedom. With the help of brave, ordinary people, she was able to lead fugitives along a clandestine Underground Railroad route that modern day travelers can trace by auto. You can get tour maps and guides and an entertaining and informative audio guide at the Dorchester County Visitor Center in Maryland. The audio guide can also be downloaded from harriettubmanbyway.com. For a true understanding of the 125-mile journey, it’s recommended to head north from Maryland.

The living room featured a gas fireplace which, I’m sure, comes in handy during Wisconsin’s frigid winters. A balcony stretched across the living room and bedroom and faced the lake.

GoNOMAD: Albany, Georgia  is Naturally F-F-Fun
When a city’s trademark is a turtle, it’s a sure sign that the natural world matters. I became aware of Albany’s love of nature when I noticed the cement in center city giving way to parkland. The city gives the Albanians (residents of Albany, not Albania) RiverFront Park, located on the shores of the scenic Flint River: six acres of manicured outdoor recreational space with pavilions and picnic groves, and one and one-half miles of natural trails.
