Standing about 1,530 feet in height, Cadillac Mountain wins a lot of superlatives. Not only is it the tallest mountain in the park.

Park Loop Road

Park visitors agree: riding along the 27-mile Park Loop Road is the best way to do a quick tour of Acadia.

The nearby Jordan Pond House Restaurant serves soups, lobster rolls and its signature popovers and tea.

Schoodic Point

As the only portion of Acadia National Park that's actually located on the mainland, Schoodic Point isn't as easily accessible as some of the park's other major attractions.

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

If you want to experience a stunning sunrise without the crowds of Cadillac Mountain, head to the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.

Sand Beach

Sand Beach is filled with sharp shells and its water rarely warms above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Carriage Roads are a 45-mile long network of paved paths created and funded by John D. Rockefeller Jr. from 1913 to 1940.

The Precipice Trail is one of the most rewarding hikes in the park, as long as you have the guts to attempt it.

A raucous natural phenomenon, this semi-submerged cave booms an hour or two before high tide. Waves fill the cave in such a way that the slapping is as loud as a thunderstorm

Thunder Hole

Another classic stop along the Park Loop Road, Otter Cliff is a giant 110-foot-high granite precipice with one of the most breathtaking ocean views on the East Coast.
