US 1: New England (minus Maine)

US 1 is a long road, and this week we're focusing on the 300-ish mile stretch between New York City and Kittery, Maine.


back roads road trip: US Highway 1 through New England: New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine

Even though this is a pretty congested stretch of US 1, there is a lot to see along the way:  quaint New England towns, large metropolises (or is it metropoli? and is it redundant to call a metropolis large?), and miles of coastline after the road curves back toward the coast for the first time since Florida.

US 1: Washington, DC to New York City

This week, we're heading from our nation's capital to the Big Apple on US 1.  Starting in DC, you'll move more slowly than you did farther south because in general, towns in the Northeast are closer together and more heavily populated than those that the highway passes through farther south.  

But there is a lot to see along the way:  quaint little towns, large metropolises (or is it metropoli? and is it redundant to call a metropolis large?), historic buildings, and national parks .

Three Days in Key West


Key West is home to the Southernmost Point in the Continental United States, key lime pie, beautiful sunsets, the End of US 1, and Hemingway's 6-toed cats.  We spent three days there after arriving by way of US 1 and the Overseas Highway, and today we're sharing our recommendations for how visitors to Key West can spend their time.
