“see the amazing scenery!”

Acadia National Park is a National Park located in the U.S. state of Maine. It reserves much of Mount Desert Island, and associated smaller islands, off the Atlantic coast. Originally created as Lafayette National Park in 1919, the oldest National Park east of the Mississippi River, it was renamed Acadia in 1929. In 2002, the National Park Service acquired the former naval base located in the Schoodic Peninsula District of Acadia National Park, and renovated it into the Schoodic Education and Research Center (SERC). SERC is one of about 20 National Park Service research learning centers in the United States, and is the largest of all these facilities. It is dedicated to supporting the scientific research in the park, providing professional development for teachers, and educating students to become a new generation of stewards who will help conserve our natural and cultural treasures. In total, Acadia National Park consists of more than 47,000 acres (73 square miles, 190 km2), including 30,300 acres (47 sq mi., 123 km2) on Mount Desert Island, 2,728 acres (4.6 sq mi., 11 km2) on Isle au Haut and 2,366 acres (3.5 sq mi., 9.2 km2) on the Schoodic Peninsula. The permanent park boundary, as established by act of Congress in 1986, includes a number of private in-holdings that the park is attempting to acquire.

The permanent park boundary, as established by act of Congress in 1986, includes a number of private in-holdings that the park is attempting to acquire. Cadillac Mountain, named after the French Explorer of the same name, is on the eastern side of the island. Its green, lichen-covered, pink granite summit is, because of a combination of its eastern location and height, one of the first places in the United States to see the sunrise. Miles of carriage roads were originally built by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. The mountains of Acadia National Park offer hikers and bicycle riders views of the ocean, island lakes, and pine forests. 2.5 - 3 hours of the best scenery and stories our area offers, featuring 3 stops inside Acadia National Park.  There is more to Acadia than meets the eye!  We'll take you to the places you HAVE to see, all the while providing you with the stories behind the scenery. After our tour, you’ll know about everything, from how last nights lobster dinner was caught to how Cadillac Mountain got its name. Stops include the top of Cadillac Mountain (highest point on the eastern seaboard), Thunder Hole (Oceanside Stop), The Jordan Pond House, and Sieur De Monts Spring (Wild Gardens of Acadia).
