What are some must-visit places in Acadia?

Acadia National Park truly is a bucket-list place for those with the soul of an explorer, adventurer, and naturalist. But there are so many wonderful things to see and do in this national park, that it can be overwhelming! In terms of "musts" for planning your trip to Acadia, definitely seek out the sunrise. Many people think that America's first sunrise is on Cadillac Mountain. While that is true some of the time, it's not a claim that can be made year-round. From early October to early March, the sun rises farther to the south. With its completely unobstructed view of the horizon, Cadillac is the place to be for a winter sunrise. The rest of the time, you'll want to head to West Quoddy Head or Mars Hill. You'll also want to plan some hikes within the park, including the above trek to Bubble Rock! Park Loop Road is one of the best options when adventuring through Acadia by car; Beehive Loop Trail is a popular choice for hikers eager to see more of the scenic views the area is known for. A beach lover's paradise, Sand Beach is a popular choice for park goers, as is Echo Lake Beach. And, of course, you'll most certainly want to venture down to Thunder Hole at dusk to bask in the muted evening colors and the mighty power of this coastal cave that can spray up to 40-foot plumes of water as the tide ebbs and flows at its base. It's a jaw-dropping natural wonder and experience that you will never, ever forget!
