How to spend 4 days driving between Bar Harbor, ME and Honesdale PA

Jump to last reply

in mid of July we are going to visit Maine first time and need advise with our last part of the vacation (before dropping off our teenager at the camp).

Part 1. We are driving from DC with 2 stops in NY(just family visit) and one night reserved at Ogunquit, ME
Part 2. July 11 - 19 we have reservations at Bar Harbor and planning to spend most of the time at Acadia National Park. We are checking out Tuesday, July 19

Part 3. ? nights T, W, Th, Fr

Part 4. on Saturday, July 23 around 11 am we have to be at the Honesdale, PA (about 30 min of Scranton, PA)
Part 5. Drive 5 - 6 hours to DC afternoon on Saturday, July 23 (or possible stay longer in PA and driving back to DC on Sunday)

We are not sure what is the best way to divide our four nights between Bar Harbor and Honesdale, PA.

We could leave Bar Harbor very late and drive 3 hours to Portland - three nights and two full days for Portland (not sure if it this good pick to stay long); leave yearly morning on Friday and drive 7 hours with one night stay at Honesdale, PA. Drive home 5-6 hours on Saturday afternoon.

My husband is OK with this plan, but I am very concerned with driving long hours on Friday and on Saturday.

since we are staying long without packing/unpacking at Bar Harbor we may drive slowly to PA and stay one night at different places, but not sure where.

we like hiking, bicycling(not me), sightseeing, museums, guided tours.
