Pristine and beautiful-many trails to choose from (even for those not in the best of shape) Pack a lobster po'boy and take a picnic. Drive to Cadillac Mountain (highest point) to see particularly pretty vistas. We also enjoyed Thunder Hole and the Otter Cliffs (beside each other). Easy drive to get out and see wildlife. I would also recommend dipping a toe in the water at Sand Beach (but that is about it 'cause that is some cold H20!) This is one of our favorite places that we have visited.
