Driving from Bar Harbor to Prince Edward Island

Hubby now wants to go to PEI at the end of our Maine stay. What route should we take? My brain is on overload after all of my planning for the Maine trip! Thanks!

Wow. $47 toll on the PEI bridge. But only in one direction. I had no idea. A week's pass to Acadia National Park is less than the bridge toll off of PEI.

Welcome to Canada..the land of high fees and taxes for everything.....its how we pay for our over promoted and misunderstood "free healthcare"

Also get ready for over $4 gas and 15% taxes on everything you buy and alcohol prices that are double to triple what you pay in the US.

But other than that..its a beautiful place to come see and visit...if you can afford it...lol.

As for the route to take..the #9 through Maine and up as posted above is the best way...you can take the I95 and cross that way as well, but its a longer distance, but higher speeds that way.
