With 59 different US National Parks to choose from, the idea of selecting just one for a family vacation or weekend hiking trip can be daunting at best. In order to help make for an easier decision, many travelers will start with a list what they’re looking for in a park, what knowledge they hope to gain, and what memories they hope to take back home.
If you’re looking for majestic mountains, scenic cliffs, towering pine trees, a vast blue ocean, rocky beaches, tranquil lakes, and a large network of winding trails that not only offer up an exciting day out, but picturesque vistas, then hiking Acadia National Park should top your list. Here you’ll find a vast wilderness waiting to be explored, peacefully tucked away on rugged islands off the coast of Maine.
