I have heard that driving in Boston is horrible. We are flying in to Boston in October and are planning on renting a car upon our arrival. Then we were going to drive toward Maine. What is the traffic going to be like on our proposed route? Is it going to be terrible? My husband is a very good driver and has driven in California, Washington, D.C., Houston, etc., but I don't like the idea of beginning our trip with a lot of stress. My daughter has suggested that we take a taxi to a nearby town and rent a car there. Is her idea practical, or am I making a mountain out of a molehill?
