Maine State Music Theatre is a 2.5 hour drive from Boston on I-95. Once in Maine, some people prefer to take the more scenic route along US-1, which passes through such historic towns as Ogunquit, Kennebunk and Portland. Or continue on I-95 for a more efficient drive to Brunswick. Of course, out-of-town guests may want to stop at world famous L.L.Bean, located just 15 minutes south of Pickard Theater in Freeport.
