Richmond, VA to Bar Harbor, MA

Question

We are traveling in our 40 ft coach and are looking for suggestions on the best route to take from Richmond to Bar Harbor. We would love the most scenic but do not want to go through the large cities.  Oh, I do procrastinate, we are leaving in the morning 😬

Too late for this maybe. Take either I-64 west to I-81. Or if to late, run the Washington beltway aroud the west side to I-270 to Frederick then west to Hagerstown. North on 81 to Syracuse then east on the turnpike to the Boston area. Runaround the west side to I-95 north into Maine.

If you are still checking this website, there are shorter ways but they are busier. Busy # 1. From the Scranton Pa area you can take I-84 east through eastern Pa. Follow it into NY State and thru to Connecticutt. I-84 will take you thru Hartford on to Mass and the Pike east to the Boston area. Do not go thru to Boston. Exit the pike at  I-495 and head north around Boston. It will join I-95 well north of Boston. Head north from there to Maine. # 2/ not really that busy, but I-88 from Binghamton used to be quite rough in spots on your way to the Albany area and I-90 east to the Boston area. In an RV I prefer I-90 from Syracuse east towards Boston. It is further, costlier, prettier, and the Turning Stone Casino east of Syracuse maybe 25 or so miles has a very nice RV park there. Maybe a mile or two south of the casino. Free transportation to the casino 24/7. Lots of places to eat. No, you do not have to gamble to stay there.

Do not cross the George Washington Bridge in your travels north. Very expensive, rough, and scary.
