“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I would have driven it twice if I had the time while I was there. The ocean views were spectacular. Start with the visitors' center movie and take your time on the drive.

“Great Drive - Don't Miss It!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Perfect for seeing much of the park without leaving your car. Lots of pull-outs for photo opportunities and great vistas. Folks just need to slow down and relax - we're there to see the sights and we're not in a hurry!!

“A pretty drive”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We took the Loop Road on a sunny day in October and although it is a pretty drive which takes most of a day with stops and the drive up Cadillac mountain, we left feeling a little disappointed as I think we were expecting a bit more.It was also very busy.
Maybe it is because we have visited many spectacular NPs in the West and have been spoilt by their amazing scenery
It is probably best to go here first before visiting parks further West!

“This is a fantastic opportunity to see the park in a limited amount of time”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Loop drive allows tourists to enjoy high points of interest within the park conveniently. Plenty of places to pull off if you want to stop, plenty of parking. Great!

“Great, A must do”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We visited Acadia National Park on October 12-13, 2012. We opted to drive - glad we did. The car would let us stop when we wanted to stop. Fall foliage fantastic. The park loop had signs giving directions to everything.


This is a must trip for all with a camera.
