Acadia National Park is located in a peninsula on the Maine coast with breath-taking mountains, lakes, beaches, forests, and grasslands, surrounded by the Atlantic ocean. Acadia is widely considered to be the most beautiful national park in the US.
Acadia National Park attracts people who love the outdoors — kayakers, walkers, birders, beach-goers, bicyclists, hikers, rock-climbers, and runners. The park contains the famed car-free “Carriage Roads,” 45 miles of fine gravel roads that traverse much of the park, offering vistas of mountains, woods, and oceans to walkers, bicyclists, and horseback-riders. Acadia also offers the restaurants, nightlife, shopping, galleries, golf courses, and amusements of Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Ellsworth, and the other nearby towns.
