The most obvious route from Waldoboro to Boothbay is rt. 1 to rt. 27, but it can back up closer to Wiscasset. Is it quieter and more scenic to take River Road and rt. 27 from Newcastle/Damariscotta to Boothbay? We're visitng the area and we have friends coming - and we'd like to give them more scenic views and less of rt. 1 only if that's a good route. Thanks!!
