You know, the state where you can't make a left turn or pump your own gas. They do make up for it with wonderful sweet corn (Silver Queen) and tomatoes (Rutgers, Jersey Giant, etc.)during the summer.
I would recommend that anyone travelling from Virginia to New Jersey bypass D.C./Baltimore entirely by going up 81 to the PA Turnpike, and across through Philadelphia. A few more miles, but no bumper to bumper, lane to lane madness. Travel time is roughly the same. Save your sanity.
