Never has land met sea in a more dramatic fashion than at Acadia National Park -- the result of a glacial ice sheet that tore through the area some 20,000 years ago. The picturesque valleys, majestic mountains and tranquil lakes have captivated individuals for centuries. Located on 49,600 acres, the park is a great place for visitors to bike the historic carriage road system, built by John D. Rockefeller, Jr.; eat local favorites like popovers and lobster; and escape it all by camping on some of the park’s remote islands.
