There is an amazing variety of activities for all ages on Mount Desert Island. Acadia National Park rangers offer nature, seacoast and wildlife programs for adults and children. A fifty-mile network of gravel-surfaced carriage roads is perfect for jogging, walking, or cycling. The 20-mile Park Loop Road is one of the great scenic roads of our nation. Get up early and bike it. Mountain trails range from child-friendly to challenging. Swim at Sand Beach on the ocean if you dare, but there are warmer life guarded lake beaches or scenic swimming from the rocks of Echo Lake. Take a ferry to Little Cranberry Island, tour the museum and have lobster on the ferry dock. Explore wonderful gardens. Don't forget tea and popovers on the lawn at the Jordan Pond House. Kayak Somes Sound or Pretty Marsh; you may find seals or eagles. Play golf or tennis, go shopping in Bar Harbor, attend a band concert on the square, and check out the Reel Pizza Cinema. Better stay at least two weeks.

Other Activities: Kayaking, canoeing, birding
