Hubby has planned for us to fly into Portland at noon Aug 14 and out of Bangor early Aug 17. Flight was booked before realizing driving US1 isn’t a scenic drive through quaint towns. I want to make sure we get to experience Bar Harbor as much as possible and avoid spending the following couple of days leaving BH but since we’ve never been to Maine Hubby feels like we should “see as much as we can.”
Planning to stop at the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory but beyond that I need some help. Which quaint little towns would we be able to get a little taste – just driving through and/or walking, maybe stopping for ice cream or an early dinner but still getting to our BH b&b at a normal hour.
I want to avoid spending our whole vacation in the car so I need this drive up to pacify his wanderlust. I want to soak a place in and really enjoy it while he wants to hurry through and see as many places as possible.
