trip ideas for acadia NP

Jump to last reply

We are going to Acadia NP from July 14th to July 20th. we will be staying at an efficiency apt just a little north of bar harbor.

My six year old and me can bicycle. Wife cannot but do they have bikes where she can ride with me?

We are leaving early on July 20th and have about half the day available to us on July 14th. So the actual trip is 5 and 1/2 days.

Need help with the foll:
1.) we like nature so please suggest some good hikes. I can certainly wake up early or go late in the night to hike for the best vista views. any ideas for good hikes for all three?

2.) Just got a slr camera to click some pics. Any points that are must visit to get some awesome memories?

3.) Places to buy groceries? Dont want to go to Bar harbor if parking is a problem. Next option mite be Elsworth.

4.) any cruises or any tours that might be worthwhile paying for? If there is a good whale watching or dolphin tour( where probability to c them is high) might be on top of the list.

5.) Any restaurants that are must visit ? we are vegetarians not vegans...but no meat, no chicken, no fish absolutely. we are huge supporters of local produce, organic options and would like to try local dairy products. My kid has nut allergies. we will be cooking at home but wanted to c if there were any options for the wife and me. any specialty pizza, sandwich places would also be welcome.

6.) any drives worth going to for sunrise or sunset views?

7.) any local entertainment/play options for kids? zoo/kids park/etc

8.) is there any other place within roughly 1.5 hour driving distance from bar harbor worth going to as a day trip?

9. what should we pack for clothes? what kind of weather would it be? umbrella needed?

thanks
borivlikar.
