The Tuusula Rantatie is a culture-rich museum road, approximately four kilometers long in Tuusula. It was once part of the main road leading from Helsinki to Heinola, but it is best known for the Tuusulanjärvi artists' community that formed along the road at the beginning of the 20th century.

Rantatie starts from the administrative center of Tuusula, Hyrylä, and leads tourists along the eastern shore of the lake from Tuusula's church village to the border of Järvenpää. It connects at both ends to Järvenpääntie (regional road 145), which also runs parallel to the lake, but a little further from its shore.

Along Rantatie in Tuusula there are several sites representing the golden age of art life, for example poet J. H. Erkko's Erkkola, national writer Alexis Kivi's "death cottage", Lotta Museum of the Lotta Svärd organization, artist Pekka Halonen's home Halosenniemi and composer Jean Sibelius' home museum Ainola located in Järvenpää.
