Mystic, CT to Bar Harbor, ME

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a family trip to stay with friends for a few days in Mystic in July. We are thinking of making a summer vacation of it and spending a week in Acadia Nat'l Park with our four kids ages 8, 10, 13 and 16.

I have many questions but am starting with trying to outline an itinerary and plan flights. We will rent a car so we don't necessarily need the closest airport and with six of us, flight cost is an issue. Any suggestions of where we might fly in and out?

What about stops along the way? My preliminary thought is for 5 nights in Mystic, then drive toward BH and stop somewhere along the way for a night or two (we like to mosey and tend to move slowly). From our mid-point, we will drive to BH and rent something there for a week.
