5 Adventures in Maine's Acadia National Park
The National Parks of America aren't just in Utah, Alaska, and California; though it seems to be the ones people talk about the most. The state of Maine is home to the lovely town of Bar Harbor and the splendid Acadia National Park.
Located in the northeast corner of the country this is one of my favorite parks in the system and there's something to do for everyone!
Today I will share 5 Adventures I recommend when spending a few days in Acadia National Park.
But first...a few fun facts and tips!
1. Cadillac Mountain is home to the first sunrise in America each day.
2. You'll want to eat a lobster at a roadside shack on the drive up...even if you don't really eat lobster. It's just a little different up there. Like enchiladas in New Mexico, BBQ in Texas, and Ice Cream in LeMars Iowa.
3. Plan at least 4 days/3 nights to explore Acadia and feel that you did more than the scenic drive.
4. Acadia is located on Mount Desert Island and John Rockefeller Jr not only donated 10,000 acres to the National Park Service but he spent $3.5 million dollars (in the early 1900's that was a lot of coin) to install 57 miles of carriage roads within the park that automobiles are prohibited on but carriages, feet, and bikes are welcomed.
Now onto the list!
Acadia is a wonderful place and there is plenty more to do and see but I think this will get you started and excited for your trip to Maine!
