The first national park east of the Mississippi River, Acadia National Park draws visitors with its rugged landscape of ocean shoreline, low-slung granite mountains, dense woodlands, and pristine lakes.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Colby College Museum of Art and Whopaints Gallery. Your inner history buff will appreciate Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site and Ship Harbor Nature Trail. Take a break from Acadia National Park with a short trip to Wonderland Trail in Southwest Harbor, about 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: hike along Heart of Acadia Loop, tour the pleasant surroundings at Beech Mountain Trail, see the interesting displays at Wendell Gilley Museum, and take in the dramatic natural features at The Bold Coast.

For photos, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Acadia National Park driving holiday website .

In October, daily temperatures in Acadia National Park can reach 59°F, while at night they dip to 42°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
