Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park ©
The first national park east of the Mississippi River, Acadia National Park draws visitors with its rugged landscape of ocean shoreline, low-slung granite mountains, dense woodlands, and pristine lakes.
Explore hidden gems such as Asticou Terraces / Thuya Garden and Bar Island Trails. Go for a jaunt from Acadia National Park to Bass Harbor to see Ship Harbor Nature Trail about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Great Head Trail, examine the collection at The Seal Cove Auto Museum, don't miss a visit to Land Bridge to Bar Island, and trek along Flying Mountain Hiking Trail.

For photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Acadia National Park driving holiday planner.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 60°F, and evening lows to 44°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
