My husband, 14 yr old daughter and I are flying into Boston Logan airport on Saturday, July 23rd. We land at approx. 2pm and will rent a car at the airport. We will then drive to Ogunquit where we have rented a cottage. I have some questions and I hope someone can help.
Can we expect major traffic delays since we will probably hit the road from BOS to Ogunquit around 3pm on a summer Saturday? If so, is there a route we can take that is quick and avoids Boston's traffic jams?
Should we expect traffic when we head from Ogunquit to BOS the following Saturday? How much time should we allow to get there? Our return flight leaves at 4:12pm.
Is there a grocery store near the route from BOS to Ogunquit? Since we are renting a cottage, we have to pick up all our supplies. We'd rather not buy basics like bottled waters, toilet tissue, paper products, etc. at the expensive Village Food Market in Ogunquit. I've heard of Shaw's in Chelsea and Kappy's Liquor store next door. Would those places be a practical stop if we are in a hurry to get to Ogunquit?
Lastly, we found out about the road construction on Rt 1 in Ogunquit after we had booked our entire trip. I know they temporarily halted the construction due to summer traffic but will we be able to bike and walk where the construction is? Are all the shops and restaurants along Rt 1 going to be open?
Thank you to anyone who can shed some light on my questions!
