Hey gang! I'm planning on taking a spur of the moment road trip this week. I'm trying to decide between driving up to Quebec City and then maybe a drive a bit of the ways up Rt. 360 towards Tadoussac.
Or do I want to meander along the Maine coast and go to Arcadia National Park?
They both appeal and I can pretty much take as much time as I like, but I'd prefer to be heading away from the touristy areas on the weekend. So I thought both destinations might work for a four day road trip and then heading back towards Boston on Saturday.
I'm probably going up to my sister's in Dover, NH tomorrow night so I figured I could leave from there and take 95N, with possible detours to York Beach, Ogunquit and Yarmouth (to see Eartha).
Then it's either stay on 95N to go to Bar Harbor and Arcadia, or take Rt 201 to Canada.
I've been to Quebec City before, but that last time was about 20 years ago and I've never driven there before. Arcadia NP and Bar Harbor I've never been to. Would heading towards Arcadia NP give me a good 4 day trip at least? I'm sure Quebec and environs would. In fact, 4 days might be kinda tight.
At this point I am seriously considering flipping a coin (with passport in back pocket) and deciding when I get to the point where I'd have to leave 95N to go to Quebec. But I figured I'd see if any of you had some suggestions. :)
