New England Road Trip 2018 - Day 6 (10/4/2018) - Mount Desert Island

After breakfast at the hotel, we retreated briefly to the hotel room and then hit the road for a look around Acadia National Park around 10am.  We first headed for the Park Loop Road in the direction of Sand Beach, stopping at interesting viewpoints along the way.  We checked out Sand Beach and the nearby Thunder Hole, and then continued around the loop to Jordan Pond.  After the pond, we turned back south to make a stop at Seal Harbor Beach before taking ME-3 northwest to transition to the western half of Mount Desert Island.


We looped down ME-202 to Southwest Harbor and dropped by Bass Harbor Head Light House.  We then continued around and looped back toward Bar Harbor and headed back to the hotel for a pit stop around 2:30pm.  During the last couple of days, I heard a couple of people say that the Southwest Harbor area is beautiful.  While I do think parts of it are scenic, in my opinion it's nowhere near as nice as driving through the park.

We headed back out to Bar Harbor to find dinner, and settled on an unassuming Chinese restaurant named China Joy.  After dinner we drove back to the hotel, making it there before 5pm.
