I plan to drive from Portland to Bar Harbor and make a few stops on the way. If I leave Portland 8 AM weekday and want to get to Bar Harbor before getting dark (say 6 PM), how many and where should I stop, and which route please. I 'm thinking to stop at Boothbay Harbor, Camden, Rockport with 1 hr at each stop.
After staying 3 nights in Bar Harbor, I will drive direct to Stowe trying to be in Stowe before getting dark. Is it possible and which route should I take? I would need only 1 stop for lunch.
