Mid-Atlantic States

Atlantic City Promenade

From the Founding Fathers to Andy Warhol, Globe Trekker’s journey through the Mid Atlantic States of America features a glimpse into the characters and colorful history of the region, covering parts of New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Fort Worth Cattle DriveBrianna starts in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and discovers that the notoriously popularised “Jersey Shores” has a softer, nostalgia-tinged side as she travels south to Wildwoods on a 1950’s themed weekend.

After taking the car-ferry from Cape May to Lewes, Brianna heads for the Chesapeake Bay, where she checks out a classic American Diner with a patriotic tradition, the U.S. Naval Academy, and then goes crabbing for the famous Maryland Blue Crabs.

Cowboy ZayHeading north, she stops by south-eastern Pennsylvania’s historic Brandywine Valley in Delaware and the Hagley Museum to see the origins of the Dupont family fortunes: a historic gunpowder factory.

Onwards to Philadelphia, America’s first capital city and a great place to get to know the Founding Fathers up close and personal. After making a pilgrimage to some of Philly’s famous ‘cheese steak’ outlets and learning about that cult food from a champion eater, she makes a triumphant run up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum and discovers she’s not the only fan of the famed Hollywood legend ‘Rocky Bilboa’.

Leaving Philadelphia, Brianna heads deeper into Pennsylvania to Amish Country, the new Flight 93 memorial, and then Pittsburgh to check out the Andy Warhol Museum.

Foam HengeHeading south into Virginia, Brianna practices a classic American highway tradition by pulling over at a curious roadside attraction which in this case is ‘Foamhenge’, a full scale replica of Stonehenge made out of Styrofoam!

Monticello House

 

 

Her final destination is Monticello, the beautifully restored home and gardens of Thomas Jefferson.
