Written DirectionsStart in Boston, Take I-93N to the Tobin Bridge to join Route 1N. After a while, you can take 95N to save time (In Danvers MA) but you'll miss the smaller MA towns. Route 1 (or 95N) will take you to Portsmouth NH. From there, take 103E to route 1A, through York, and then to Ogunquit ME. You can continue on Route 1 to Saco ME and then take Route 9 to Old Orchard Beach if you have the time, or inclination.
SceneryEverything from City Skylines to beach! As you get out of the city to smaller towns you'll see forests, fields and marshes. Once you cross into ME, you are met with Coastal Areas and Beaches, with roads like 103E and Rt 1A that hug the coast. If so inclined you can continue on Rt.1 through Kennebunkport to Rt. 9 up to Old Orchard Beach which also hugs the coast.
Note: bring along some warm clothing if you can. Even in Summer, the winds and temp can get a bit chilly since you'll be on the coast with lots of sea breezes blowing. It seems like as soon as you cross the ME state line, the temp seems to drop 10 degrees!! lol!
