Planning a trip with mom to Bar Harbor-first time for both of us.
I'm Interested in making the most of the trip there and back, so thought it would be nice to get there on a leisurely pace so we can make a few scenic stops along the Maine Coast along the way
Was thinking should drive as far as possible, to maybe NH/ME border, stay at a motel for the night, then get up early the next morning and make our way to Bar Harbor.
1. Do you think that's a good idea, or do you think that still leaves too much ground to cover to get to Bar Harbor by dinner time? (IF so, is there a specific town/village along the Maine Coast you'd recommend staying in for that night?)
2. Which route do you recommend-- Route 1 all the way, or Taking 95 and then making select exits at the specific points/places we want to make pit stops at?
3. Which towns/places do you most recommend seeing/visiting en route to Bar Harbor?
4. When we return, I want to do the opposite, and go back as quickly as possible (I have to take mom all the way back to PA), so what is the quickest route?
