What you will visit:
Acadia National Park/Park Loop Road
First established in 1916, Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is the oldest national park east of the Mississippi. A 47,000-acre Atlantic coastline recreation area, it is best showcased by Park Loop Road, a 27-mile stretch designated as one of America's most scenic byways. It ribbons past such highlights as Otter Cliff, the summit of Cadillac Mountain, with its 360-degree view of the coast, historic Jordan Pond House, and Thunder Hole.
What you will see along the way:
Take in the stunning coastline of Acadia, the first National Park east of the Mississippi. Take in sweeping views of rugged shoreline, evergreen forests of spruce and pine, and mountain summits. Travel down the Park's 27-mile Park Loop Road past Thunder Hole. Enjoy views of Otter Cliff and Maine's rocky coast. Drive to the summit of the Cadillac Mountain, then into Bar Harbor.

Photo Opportunities:

Thunder Hole
Under the right tidal conditions, ocean swells converge with a thunderous roar against the granite coastline at dramatic Thunder Hole. If the tides are favorable, you will see the ocean spray shooting high into the air.

Cadillac Mountain
Named for Sieur de la Mothe Cadillac, who migrated from France and settled in Maine during the 17th century, the 1,532-foot-tall mountain is not only the tallest on Mount Desert Island but also has the distinction of being the highest point on the North American east coast. The summit offers awe-inspiring views of Bar Harbor and beyond.
