We have been coming to MDI for 13 years and my family just loves it. It is so relaxing. You can make it and adventure holiday, relaxing holiday or a shopping holiday. We usually try to a little of all of them. The people on this island are just wonderful, always helpful and kind.

During our stay at the Sea Breeze we did the park loop tour which had great views, drove up the mountain, and walked out by Sand Beach and the point of land overlooking the beach. We picnicked on the beach...the water was too cold to swim in.

This is some of the most beautiful scenery in the US. I've been in all 50 states and this one of the nicest views there is. We drove the loop and it is breath taking. Would do it again in a minute.

Mount Desert Island offers the most beautiful scenic views that can be found anywhere. You will find scenic mountains, sea, seagulls, birds, and ocean life along with great little towns and wonderful people.

Most beautiful area on the east coast. Camping, hiking, biking view after view, Some excellent eating spots. A few too many tourists in the summer. Been there every year but 3 since 1966!

Awesome views. Wonderful hikes. Everything in Acadia park is one great thing after another. Sitting here to watch the water is as simple as it gets.
