We are driving from Maryland the morning of Friday June 20th, with stops at Wesleyan University Amherst College for tours (son is a rising junior so can come back for more another time). We'd like to be able to join an 11:30 tour at Bowdoin on Saturday. Seems Amherst and Bowdoin are 3.5 hours apart, so I'm thinking we won't have the time or stamina to drive all the way to Brunswick on Friday night (its 5.5 hours to Wesleyan, then another 1.5 to Amherst from there). I'm looking for a place to stop for dinner and overnight that's a little closer than Amherst so that we don't have to get the boys up super early to get to the 11:30 tour. Any ideas appreciated. We need to be in Lubec on Sunday afternoon, and planned to go the Bangor/Rt 9 route there. Once in Lubec the pace of the rest of the trip switches to sane and relaxing.
