A trip to the Brandywine Valley might feel like a visit to another time, far removed from everyday life ... yet it's only minutes away from I-95, one of the busiest highways on the east coast.

No matter where you are right now, the Brandywine Valley is probably closer than you think.

Wilmington, Delaware and the Brandywine Valley sit midway between Washington D.C. and New York City, just two hours away from each by car on I-95 ... and even quicker on the AMTRAK trains that carry commuters and visitors into downtown Wilmington on a daily basis.  Amtrak's Northeast Regional line allows riders to travel with their bicycle (for a small additional fee) so you can explore bike-friendly Delaware - ranked a top-10 bicycle friendly state by the League of American Bicyclist. And don't fear, small pets, 20 pounds and under, can also travel the Northeast Regional. SEPTA commuter trains provide regional transportation from Philadelphia directly to Wilmington.

The region is also served by the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), just 30 minutes north of downtown Wilmington. If arriving from the south, the Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) is another option and is just 90 minutes away.
