(PRWEB) May 16, 2006 –
This year commemorates the 200-year anniversary of the Historic National Road, “America’s First Interstate”. Throughout 2006, many events have been scheduled to commemorate the bicentennial of the Historic National Road, but probably the most unusual is an 824-mile yard sale running through six states: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. To celebrate the bicentennial, BnBFinder.com, a leading online bed and breakfast directory, has created a special bed and breakfast tour featuring inns along the route.
Bed and breakfast tour stops:
St. Louis, Mo. – The Fleur-de-Lys Mansion or The Lodge at Grant’s Trail
Effingham, Ill. – Martin Ranch
Indianapolis, Ind. – Stone Soup Inn
Columbus, Ohio – Greenleaf House
Glen Dale, W.Va. – Bonnie Duane Bed & Breakfast
Farmington, Penn. – The Quiet House B&B with Cottages
Grantsville, Md. – The Stonebow Inn
Baltimore, Md. – Abacrombie Fine Foods & Accommodations or Scarborough Fair B&B
The complete tour can be found at http://www.BnBFinder.com/NationalRoad
The bed and breakfast tour offers a unique blend of old and contemporary, gourmet and home style. When you want a break from the bargains, some bed and breakfasts are housed in historical buildings that create the ideal setting from which to set out on an exploration of other early American sites. But even the oldest do not skimp on modern amenities. Most inns are close to a wide array of restaurants and shops, while others are tucked away in more remote areas surrounded by natural beauty and outdoor activities. Innkeepers are a great source of information on the best dining and points of interest and will be happy to help you cater your trip to your tastes.
