The cultural and historical hub of Brandywine Valley sits about 35 miles (63km) west of Philadelphia, on US 1 which is accessibly by both bus and train. It has magical landscapes, country inns, fascinating museums, and beautiful gardens, all found in the heart of Chester County.

Visitors can enjoy Longwood Gardens, the Brandywine River Museum with its unique art collection in a grist mill, the Chaddsford Winery, the Simon Pearce glassblowing studio, and shopping in historic Kennett Square.
