Itinerary: Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine

After searching for the best place to start our travel post-quarantine, Acadia National Park checked off many of the boxes – low COVID numbers, option to travel from out of state without a two week quarantine, plenty of outdoor activities, and affordable. Bar Harbor allows for a break from the outdoors for a lovely downtown experience. There really is so much to do! After creating a rough draft during quarantine, here was how our itinerary mapped out.
