Acadia National park is one of the most beautiful places in America. It is very unique for a National Park because local residences are dispersed throughout the grounds. Touring can be done on foot or by car. The view from Cadillac mountain is special.

Stopped by the center to get a park pass and pick up some information. The film was informative and the park rangers were helpful. Restrooms were clean.
