Located just off Historic Route 1 is Ferry Farm, Virginia, the boyhood home of George Washington. Ferry Farm inspired the fable about George cutting down his father's cherry tree and is the spot where George threw a stone (or was it a silver dollar?) across the Rappahannock River.
A short drive from New York, New Jersey, and Boston, Connecticut blends high culture to stimulate the mind and scenic landscapes to relax the soul.
Historic Route 1 travels through the heart of New Haven — home to Yale University, among the world's preeminent learning institutions. Walk the halls of Yale's art gallery, featuring masterpieces by Van Gogh, Manet, and Picasso. Outside the university, the city of New Haven lures shoppers, foodies, and culture vultures. Catch a play at the Shubert Performing Arts Center, where "South Pacific" and "My Fair Lady" first premiered. You might see theater history in the making. Step aboard the Amistad, the slave ship that inspired the movie, and learn about this painful chapter in American history.
