“Pretty Drive but Lots of Stop Lights”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

The coast line of Maine is drop dead gorgeous! But the traffic on summer days is awful. It seemed as if every little town had a red light to keep us there. We prefer to interstate to get to where we are going...THEN we enjoy the coastline

“Take route 1 north!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Bring your camera and be prepared to stop and use it. Drive all the way up to Bar Harbor and stop in the wonderful towns along the way to antique, take pics, eat and shop. Stop at the hometown for LL Bean in Freeport, Maine. The entire town is devoted to big name stores at discounts. Bar Harbor is a wonderful town with lots of energy and great places to eat. Unfortunately the government was shut down when we were there so we missed most of Acadia National Park.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Fortunately we had fantastic weather so that all our journeys on this trip were blessed with sunny skies, only one rainy afternoon. The scenery is wonderful and the colors of the trees never to be forgotten. We definitely have to come back, maybe next year.
