GUIDE: Road Trip: Close to Home attractions for April 7

Here's how to enjoy all of this week's destinations from Road Trip: Close to Home - everything from the Nassau County Museum of Art for an exhibit on impressionism to the amusement rides of Adventureland. We also check out feminist art at Brooklyn Museum, explore the downtown of New Canaan and then head all the way up to White Oak Farm in Yorktown Heights, where they're making maple syrup.
