“Another gorgeous US National Park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This is indeed another one of the great US National Parks. However, what made this particularly enjoyable was the Fall weather (crisp, clear and cool) and the incredible colors of the Fall Foliage. We were even lucky enough to see a deer as we drove the loop.

This is a must-see National Park any time of the year and nobody should let the time of year (Fall or Winter) keep you from visiting. We spent one full day in the park and could have easily spent another if we had the time. We started our visit in the Visitor's Center and the Park Rangers were very helpful in assisting us with where to stop and hike, take pictures, etc....

We highly recommend this National Park to anyone who enjoys natural beauty and the great outdoors.

“Earrings found.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

While driving on the Heart of Acadia Loop, we stopped and I found some acorns. They were small, not like the elongated ones found in California. I have a pair of earrings made from CA acorns. I am anxious to find out how to make ME acorn earrings, I am reminded of my beautiful Maine Heart of Acadia Loop journey when I see the little acorns.

“Beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We just visited Acadia Nat'l Park in early September with friends from Germany. It's a beautiful park. If you've gone that far drive the entire loop road. We walked along Sandy Beach and also enjoyed the views from Cadillac Mtn. Wish we stayed for the sunset. We stopped alongside the road and had a very enjoyable picnic next to a stream. And Bar Harbor is such a nice place to visit, as well. The shops are quaint, the lobster was delicious and the view is so pretty. Definitely want to go back.
