*To save on time and tolls when driving in from Baltimore, MD, Washington, DC and other areas south, take I-95 North, cross the Susquehanna River, go through one toll ($5 northbound only), and immediately take Exit 93 for Route 222 (in Maryland). After exiting, turn right onto Route 222 (Jacob Tome Rd.). Almost immediately the road becomes Route 275 (Don't continue on Route 222, which turns to the left). A few miles later when Route 275 ends at a "T" intersection, make a right turn onto Route 276. Take Route 276 to Route 1 North, which in approximately 4 miles crosses into Pennsylvania. Stay on Route 1 beyond Kennett Square until you reach Longwood's entrance ramp.
