This is one of my wife's favorite drives. We took the drive a number of years ago and had a great time. In summer it can be somewhat busy, but the traffic was not as bad as I expected. Really a beautiful drive.

It was so much fun to shop in the LL Bean stores. There were so many things available that are not in the catalogs. It was also nice to actually touch the fabrics and see the quality of the items.

Freeport has a real nice downtown with shopping, restaurants, and of coarse LL Bean. Good walking downtown with plenty of free parking that is difficult to find these days. We really enjoyed our short stay there, wished we had more time to spend.

If you have time to take a slower pace, this is an enjoyable drive. If you don't have time, don't do it. The speed limit is frequently below 55 mph. There are also a lot of people driving slowly, enjoying the views.

This route can be a relaxing and scenic drive provided you pick the right sections. First bear in mind that it doesn't always follow the coast so getting to some coastal towns may require short diversions. The section from the Canadian border at Calais to...More

We traveled along the highway coast line through many small towns. Taking our time and exploring local shops and photographing some lighthouses. It was a lovely, relaxing day.

Route One on the map looks wonderful - it winds through the picturesque Maine towns and villages, never far from the coast. In fact, this description only provides to parts of the route. In other areas, especially in the southern part of the state the...More
