Not sure why this is an attraction. Quiet, local road with some nice homes, a few scenic vistas, etc. Very confusing around Branford Center in that the road is sort of U-shaped to go down by the water, but also marked to go across the top of the U. One intersection literally showed the road going three ways (without any north/south/east/west indication). Quickest way around area is still 95 if traffic is good, but this is a pretty, if slow, drive.

Agree with prior reviews. Route 1 definitely has all the "action," but this is a lovely quiet way to see the surrounding land. You won't regret taking time out to make this drive.
