Tolls or no tolls? Interstates or back roads?

We are flexible re major vs. state highways as we plan to stop and look around a few times en route, especially in the eastern portion of the trip....i.e. Small towns, antiques, historic sites, etc. Our Abby is a Cairn

I can give you some advice but it's based on the way we travel. We pick a destination and like to move along getting there to spend time at our selected destination. When we went from Pittsburgh to Nova Scotia. Our basic route as I 79 - I 80 - I 84 - I 290 - I 495 - I 95 then we get off and run US 1 or 1A up to Nova Scotia. We don't take much time as we've lived in this area and spent lots of time in and around the area south of Maine.

Once in Maine we meander up to Lands End outlet and stay at the nearby KOA, very nice with huge dog park. Then we move up to a Maine SP called Cobbs Cook Bay SP. No hookups but wonderful place and they take reservations try to get site 5U. The up to Nova Scotia with a stop at the Bay of Fundy - 40 foot tides.

We also stop all along the way and have lobster rolls at least two times a day in Maine.

It's a nice trip, and our return is usually even quicker.

We happen to think Maine is nicer than Nova Scotia, but they are very different so it's a nice trip and if you have time stop in at Prince Edward Island, different as well.

Enjoy

Also, all along these interstates there are roads that were "replaced" and you can jump off and follow those. Southern New England is so crowded in our opinion that we just want to get thru it so there we stay on the interstates.
