Which route to take

Looking for advice on which route to take: We will be leaving Bar Harbor and heading towards Portland. This will be on a Thursday in early October. We plan to stop for lunch in Freeport, with probably a look at the L.L. Bean outlet. Taking Rt. 1 looks like a 3 1/4 hour drive and the Bangor to I-95 route looks like about half an hour faster. We aren’t really concerned about getting there quickly, we’d rather have the prettier, more scenic drive. Which do you suggest? Thank you!

1. Re: Which route to take

Actually, I just looked back at a post I made last spring and I found my answer. Route 1 it is!

I found a response from bonniemaev that answered this question and offered some ideas for sights to see.

Thanks!
