Formed millions of years ago by the jagged edges of Ice Age glaciers, the area that became Acadia National Park offers dramatic coastal scenery. Most of Acadia National Park is on Mount Desert Island, once a popular summer resort for the wealthy. While the park’s premier season is summer, winter visitors can cross-country ski, snowmobile, ice fish, and hike. Early fall, when the summer crowds have departed, is one of the best times to visit. This guide is one complete vacation written with families in mind. It’s loaded with exciting things to do, family-friendly places to lodge and dine, recommended side trips, local sources of information, and detailed travel directions.
