Outdoor Fun for Families in Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park in Maine was the first national park in the East, and includes the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast, along with several other mountains, lakes, ponds and forests. Its jagged and irregular shore is lined by a succession of high cliffs, headlands, coves and beaches. Trails and cycling routes are accessible from the road that circles the park, and handy Island Explorer buses stop at all the attractions and at trail crossings, so walkers and cyclists can explore the park without backtracking. You can rent kayaks, canoes, sailboats and bicycles, and find fishing and whale-watching cruises outside the park in Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor or Southwest Harbor.
