Has anyone tried it? I've never been to Acadia but I've read it's not recommended to drive to the park so I'm trying to avoid $300+ car rental if it's just going to sit in a parking lot for a week.
I'm aiming to go the week before 4th of July when the shuttle (exploreacadia.com) starts (6/23 - 30). I've found flights via Jet Blue to the Bar Harbor airport rather then going to Bangor. Although the shuttle seems to cover a lot of the island, Bar Harbor sounds like the best bet without a car (undecided about camping within the park itself). The shuttle runs about every half hour which is pretty good.
Any advice or other options? Something I'm missing...? Other towns to stay in besides Bar Harbor?
