We'll be traveling from PA to Bar Harbor in early August with a stop for 2 nights in Boston. I believe we're going to stop in Rockland on our way up to Bar Harbor for the Lobster Festival and then on to Bar Harbor.
I've been told the drive along Route 1 is fantastic, but I'm wondering if we should pick that up just after Boston or get it later on in the trip. Any ideas how much this will slow down the trip? It looks like it would normally be 4-5 hours, so I'm expecting a bit longer on Route 1, but I don't want to double my time!
Would it be better to stay on 95 and just exit at certain points to drive sections of Route 1?
Thanks for any advice/input!
