One of the best features of Drive I-95 is the information about offbeat attractions not far off the road. If visiting the supposed birthplace of the hamburger is not exactly a destination, it can sure reduce the tedium of a long drive. So might the amazing laundromat in Maryland the Posners describe, where you can play pool while your shorts dry.
I-95 is one of the most heavily traveled roadways in North America. Thanks to the Posners' book, it can now also be one of the most enjoyable ones.
Driving along a freeway, you are sure to miss interesting stops as you whiz by the exits. In this book, you can enjoy finding attractions in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
"Exit 10: Furlong's Cottage Candies - Stop the car! You are about to pass a 90-year-old homemade chocolate store. They are famous for stemmed cherries dipped in fondant and then milk or dark chocolate." ~ pg. 55
Many of the locations include information about places like where to find a Krispy Kreme or Hotel, but there is much to love about the writing in this book. Unique stories about fun places for kids, like FunWay on Exit 9 in Massachusetts may give children something to look forward to and you might want to read the information and then go back to the map and circle "Funway Café" so you remember to stop at this location if you have kids riding in the car with you.
Places of Interest on this trip include:
Ava Gardner Museum
Abingdon Manor - gracious dining along the way
The Smallest Church in America
Prime Outlets Darien - Shopping along the way
Reading this book started to make me really hungry for pizza. They describe restaurants and spend a lot of time talking about the places to eat along the way. Directions are given to get to Timothy's Ice Cream for hand-churned ice cream. The writers investigate gourmet hot dog joints and comment on antique centers and museums.
Lots to enjoy even if you are an armchair traveler dreaming of getting out on the open road with your favorite music.
