What are some other great things to do in Acadia?
Visiting Acadia is filled with a plethora of great locations and hikes. Some of the most popular are Cadillac Mountain, Jordan Pond, and Thunder Hole. If you would like to drive up Cadillac Mountain then you would know that you will now need a ticket in advance. This was all part of the effort to limit the traffic up and down the mountain during peak times like sunrise. We highly suggest driving up and taking in the views from the amazing summit. Jordan Pond is another great one to visit, but we would suggest you arrive early because the parking lot will fill up quickly. As for Thunder Hole, the best time to visit is one to two hours before high tide. Make sure to check the tide charts before you go to catch the waves making their thunderous and violent impact on the rocks.
