Spending a week in August, first in Portland, then visiting relatives in Raymond. From there we've got three nights booked in Bar Harbor. I'm wondering about how to route us to Bar Harbor. I know the quickest route is the highway, but I'd really like to see at least some of Rt 1 on the way up, perhaps the Camden area? We only have the day to get to Bar harbor, no time to overnite elsewhere, but I would like to experience the beauty of the Maine coast as much as possible. I would really appreciate suggestions on how to plan our day of travel. We'll be traveling on Monday, so traffic should be less difficult than the weekend.
Thanks for all suggestions.
