On Monday, I had to make several trips up and down Route 1 - I came to work, drove back down past Longwood for a meeting, drove back to work, and then drove home again. While making my 4 trips up and down the same 7 mile stretch I realized how lucky I am to have such a great drive everyday. I know lots of people that spent their commute on I-95, or stuck on 202 or the Blue Route. So - as taken from my car window, at some traffic lights, and a quick U-turn, here is my daily commute and a little bit about some of my favorite Brandywine Valley attractions!
In the summer, fall, and spring - I love this hill coming out of Chadds Ford. There is a great line of sight and the trees are beautiful. During the winter, this hill is the worst part of my drive as I have to come down it in the mornings when there is ice and snow, and then come back up it (often behind trucks and idiot drivers) in the evening. I guess each drive has good points and bad points, and this hill connects the town of Chadds Ford with Kennett Square, and is a necessary evil in the Brandywine Valley.
