Acadia National Park for Kids

Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park, located on Mt. Desert Island in coastal Maine, features dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean atop jagged, maritime cliffs. Many visitors to Acadia stay up all night to see the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. It is said to be the first place in the United States to see the sunrise every day. Others hike the park’s many cliffs, kayak or canoe in the park’s cool waters, birdwatch, drive along the 27-mile long scenic Loop Road, or shop in the nearby town of Bar Harbor.
