Getting Around Route 1 Traffic

i-95 North & Route 1 can get quite backed up in the summer as many people in New England & surrounding states have summer homes & plan vacations up our way.

Below are 2 alternate routes to Ocean Acres Ogunquit that will help you avoid the traffic. Follow the instructions below to use the Google Map directions for the route of your choice.

Route Option #1

The “Let’s Not Even Risk it” Option

This route gets you off Route 1 as soon as possible. This is a good option for peak traffic days or those who want to sit through the least local traffic as possible.

How to use these directions:

  1. Click the button below
  2. Delete the 1st, latitude & longitude stop
  3. With your cursor in the empty, 1st stop, click the “Your Location,” blue button underneath the directions
  4. Click the blue, “Send directions to your phone” button underneath the directions & send them to either your phone or the Google Maps app
  5. Either open the text you just received that reads “See directions from Your Location to Bourne’s Ocean Acres Ogunquit…” & click the link in that text OR click the Google Maps notification that just popped up on your phone, respectively
  6. Click “Start” within the Google Maps App when you’re ready to depart!
  7. You’re good to go, just follow the Google Maps GPS!

*PLEASE NOTE: as you’re following the directions in Google Maps, it may say that you’ve “arrived” everytime you switch roads. Please ignore that until you see our property. In order to force the directions to stay off Route 1, we simply added many “stops” at each road we want you to turn on.

Route Option #2

The “Sometime’s You Gotta Risk it to Get the (Hot Dog)” Option

This route stays on Route 1 for about 4 miles before turning off that main road to avoid upcoming Ogunquit traffic. This is a good option for when the traffic isn’t so bad; you were a little too confident about the traffic when you first got off the highway, but later realize you made a grave mistake; or you want to try out the local legend, Flo’s Hot dogs! 🌭
