Easiest route, quickest route, most picturesque route?

I could give you several suggestions, but without knowing what you are wanting, it would be useless information.

The other reply is correct.

We are currently heading to Maine and Atlantc Canada from Coastal South Carolina. Took 81 through VA and PA, to Binghamton. Now on to VT before Maine.

Didn't want to drive DC, Philly, NYC or BOS. Did that years ago when living in South Jersey.

Bottom line is, you have lots of choices, get out a US map, look at it from the high level.

Decide what you want to see on the way and how much time you have.

For us, the quickest route wasn't the best.

Sadly, the easiest is not the quickest.

Fir quick.... Get to 95 in MD/DE, cross the Bridge to the NJ Turnpike.... GEoWash bridge and 95, straight to Maine.

Lots of traffic and crazy drivers... I was one.

Easier drive: go across the Anap Bay Bridge, get to 70 west. At Hagarstown, head north up 81. Then 88to Albany, 90. 90 to 87 to Rt 7 to rt 9 in VT. Cross VT and NH on 9, 202 etc.... Don't get on 95 until you are in Maine.

Happy trip! (We'll be there Thursday!)

Follow the maps, not GPS.

GPS will send you back to the east coast metropolitan areas.

I agree - this may or may not be the quickest since the last time we were coming back down from Maine, we chose quickest, but we ended up sitting on the highway near the Geo Washington Bridge for about 4 hours and moved about 2 miles. Our 3 hour trip turned into over 7 1/2 hours!
