Route 1, which stretches from the Florida Keys to the Canadian border, is arguably at its most scenic along Maine's coast. Here’s how to see it in a long weekend, with stops for lighthouses, lobster, and blueberry beer.

9 p.m.: Check in to the Press Hotel, Portland

3 of 15

Spend the night at the quirky new Press Hotel, an Autograph Collection Hotel, which opened in May in the Old Port. Design firm Stonehill & Taylor took inspiration from the building’s heritage as the former home of the Portland Press Herald. You’ll find playful journalism motifs peppered throughout, from the lobby installation made of antique typewriters to the custom wallpaper printed with headlines chosen by the newspaper’s editors. Each of the 110 rooms channels a 1920s writer’s office. Sitting at the vintage-inspired desk, you might feel compelled to send a postcard home.
