Where to stop in CT or MA

In a few weeks I will be traveling from PA to Acadia NP in Maine. I know in CT at exit 2 off I-84 you can stay overnight in the RV parking lot. I have stayed there before. Does anyone know of a safe place to spend a few hours further North/East along my route? I take I-84 from PA into Mass then I-90 to I-495 (or is taking 190 to 290 to 490 a better route?) to I-95. I would like to get through, or most of the way through CT before I stop for a few hours to "nap". Thank you for any help/suggestions.

Tracy -

There is a T of A at exit 71 on I84. Lots of parking, decent food and store. Will still leave you a bit of a haul to Acadia so nap well.

(previously from Maine)

Thanks for the recommendations. This gives me 3 options for stopping. It all depends on how tired I am.

84 t0 90 to 190 to 495 north will save you time and some toll. We spent 9 days in Acadia last summer and loved it! Have a great trip!

Thanks for the information. I have gone both ways and wasn't sure which was better.

tlhdoc-- Going to Me. you can go 84-90-290(except rush hours)495-95. You can also go 495-3/ FE Everette turnpike(toll road)101-293-101-which will go by Raymond NH-- quite a few campgrounds in the Raymond area. Roads are all 2-4 lanes 65 mph. They are all a PIA at rush hour mainly 495. Best bet-- go by helecopter. lol Larry

Short of going by a helicopter I find traveling at night/early am the best time to go through the area.
