“Acadia National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

Is fabulously varied and beautiful. Wanted to snowshoe, but there was no snow. So hiked around on carriage roads which we ice-free and very scenic. No crowds!

“Even in the rain its gorgeous.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

What a spectacular place, even in the rain. Be prepared for wind, cooler temps, and plan to stay a while so you can see the clouds, light, and surroundings change.
