help for Maine coastal trip in June, one week to drive back to NJ

Jump to last reply

Greetings fellow travelers! I need some guidance on planning this trip, have never traveled to this area and not sure of travel times and where to stop. Driving from St. Andrews, NB to Princeton, NJ. My daughter and I have about 6-7 days to make this trip. Coastal Maine looks like a beautiful area to spend the largest chunk of time.

Details: Leaving St. Andrews, NB on Sunday, June 24. Have a rental car that I need to return to Bangor airport either Sunday or Monday, then the rest of the trip is driving with my daughter. Would like to be back in Princeton NJ on June 30, I fly home from Newark, NJ on July 1.

Questions: I'm not sure if I should return car on Sunday then head back to the coast, or stay along the northeast coast on Sunday and return car to Bangor on MOnday (by 2:30 pm), then head back east to the coast, driving along Rt. 1.

Where would you recommend stopping along the way? I'd like to book hotels/BBs now but not sure how much time to allow for the journey through Maine, which towns would be good overnight points. Would also love to visit LLBean. Probably will spend just one night in each area as we head south. Definitely will visit LLBean, but since it's open 24/7 that leaves a lot of flexibility for that stop.

Where to stop after Maine? I'd truly appreciate any advice you have to offer. Obviously our time is very limited, certainly not enough to do justice to Maine and the New England Coast, but it's what we have so I'd like to make the most of it. Thanks so VERY much for your thoughts and suggestions! I'm looking at multiple guidebooks and still a bit confused and overwhelmed.

Happy day to you all and thanks so much!
