This is a beautiful island with scenic views and easy to drive around. The Acadian National Park is worth a visit, as well as a lot of the other little harbor towns scattered around the island.

Acadia National Park is special for many reasons. Mount Desert Island is where ocean meets mountains . Ocean, mountain, forest, wildlife, whales, sea life, & flora are wonderful to view. Need a few days to explore Park, Bar Harbor , & surrounding area.
