What are the pros and cons of taking the ferry to get there?

A lot of people say it's less hassle, quicker etc to take the ferry, but according to yahoo maps it'll take us 5 hours to get there from New Hampshire whether we drive the whole way or take the ferry. What am I missing? Is the traffic so bad that yahoo is understimating the time? Something else?

Any help would be appreciated.

The only 'con' is the price. The LIE is not cheap, but the Ferry is gouging...its per car and then PER passenger as well.... So if there are 4 other guys in your car....thats an additional 48$...or 95$ for one way...

But then that's like 20-25 bucks a guy. Sounds reasonable to me. The savings in gas, tolls, and to not deal with the traffic alone is a good enough reason for me.

Also, all of the fields are within 15 to 20 minutes when you get off the ferry.
