GUIDE: Road Trip: Close to Home attractions for May 5

Here's how to enjoy all of this week's destinations from Road Trip: Close to Home. This week, we have some good old-fashioned family fun at a Long Island farm run by the same family for 40 years. We also hit a board game café in Brooklyn and check out a punk rock exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Connecticut.
