Discover the best of the Brandywine Valley on a scenic drive through Pennsylvania and Delaware, using this great article shared by U.S. News & World Report on October 21, 2016 as a guide.
“The Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway has so many mansions it’s been dubbed “Chateau Country,” so many gardens that it’s part of “America’s Garden Capital” and, of course, a fascinating history. George Washington’s troops fought here, the du Ponts founded their company and dynasty here, becoming one of America’s wealthiest families, and three generations of Wyeths painted here. The area owes much to the du Pont family, whose slogan could be “better living through philanthropy.” And driving along a picturesque 12-mile route of the Brandywine Valley is rich with lovely gardens, interesting museums and storied estates. Here are seven can’t-miss stops for a road trip to remember.”
