If your setting out in the morning for this little road trip be aware that much of the wildlife is active during the morning hours so you will want to drive with a little more care. With over 17,000 species of wildlife in the park your bound to see at least one or two interesting creatures on your tour of the loop.

If you are looking to expand your road trip by a few hours or even a day there are several coastal towns and villages and summer mansions on the outskirts of Acadia worth visiting. If you want to add some real excitement to your road trip around Park Loop, drive the Loop in the morning and then spend the afternoon on a 4 hour whale watching trip starting from Bar Harbor around noon.

Whether you just looking for a short road trip with plenty of fascinating scenery or looking for something a little longer including the Park Loop at Acadia National Park as part of your travels should provide you with a great basis for any road trip in Maine.

So make sure your car is road worthy, fill up with gas, pack some snacks and maybe your lunch and set out to enjoy some of the best Maine has to offer.
