“A wonderful drive!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed taking our time and making as many stops as we wanted on a gorgeous Sunday and Monday (8 and 9 Jun 2014) in Acadia. We purchased a CD with an audio tour of Acadia at Hulls Cove Visitor Center; this tour was easy to follow and provided insights that we might have missed had we depended on printed materials. The route is pleasantly designed and offers plentiful opportunities to stop and revel in the spectacular settings.

“Beautiful Drive”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is a beautiful drive with many chances for outstanding photo shots. We were on a cruise ship, rented a van for the entire family and had a great time cruising through the park. There is an entrance fee.Just a tip---if you are on a cruise and decided to rent a car, the car in our case had to come from the airport which is several miles away. Allow plenty of time for that pick up travel.

“Some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Breathtaking views. Well maintained park. The self guided CD auto tour was informative. Entertained teens and seniors alike. Only recommendation would be to cut back some of the trees as they are blocking views from some overlooks.

“Exceptionally Beautiful”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Many, many varied things to see. An easy drive, with ample photo ops & parking just about anywhere. Roads clearly marked. Stop at Jordan Pond restaurant for a very good meal & wonderful gift shop with souvenirs of all kinds. For those who just want a snack, there is a nice little food area on the 2nd floor of the gift shop for soup, snacks, beverages, etc.
