Visit the crown jewel of the North Atlantic Coast.
Located on the beautiful coast of Maine, Acadia National Park is sure to impress. It is a short drive away from the tourist haven of Bar Harbor. Here, you can enjoy the quiet and scenic drive up to Cadillac Mountain and around the park loop. The tallest mountain on the Atlantic coast is the perfect place to catch the first rays of sun in the U.S. Plan to arrive early if you want to watch the sunset or sunrise over the islands near Acadia. This is one of the smallest and most visited national parks. Please note that there is a $30 entrance fee per vehicle, and the pass is valid for one week. The Island Explorer Shuttle Bus can take you around the park if you don't want to drive. This shuttle operates annually from the end of June through Columbus Day in October.
Hikers, bikers, and nature lovers can spend minutes or hours getting lost on the lakes and trails throughout the park. Campers can relax at the campsites within the park and around Mount Desert Island. Acadia's campgrounds are Blackwoods, Seawall, Schoodic Woods, and Duck Harbor. Duck Harbor is only accessible by boat and is found on the remote Isle au Haut. Visit Sand Beach and Thunder Hole or picnic at one of Acadia's 30 lakes for a scenic day trip. Acadia National Park is worth a visit if you're traveling in the upper New England region of the east coast. Explore this beautiful park with your friends and family.
