East Coast 2012 - Acadia & Bar Harbor

     Another place we wanted to check out during our visit was Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Maine.  I did not know much about it other than it was a scenic national park which overlooks the coast.  After being there, I can tell you it would be a dream for biking and hiking.  Our time was limited as we drove about 2.5 hours each way just to get to Acadia.  Once we entered the park, we concentrated on the Cadillac Mountain area and stopped at only about four "points" of interest.
     All of the views as well as the drive itself are incredibly scenic and likely a photographer's dream.  The only way I can describe it would be like the Grand Canyon of the East Coast.  You could probably make a week of it and stll not see all there is to see!!  Very worthwhile and the kids loved it, too!!
     I believe Martha Stewart still has a place in Bar Harbor -- and if I had my way -- we would have stayed until we found her place or her!!!!!!  Also great shopping and nightlife in Bar Harbor!!
