Hi! I have read through much of the forum, but have a few questions. My friend and I will be camping in Acadia for 4 nights with 3 girls ages 9,13,&14. The adults and 9 year old enjoy hiking, the teenagers are a little more reluctant. I have pinpointed some hiking trails, but want to have a few non-nature things lined up to keep the teenagers happy. We are not on an extremely tight budget, but are also not looking to spend, spend, spend.(Also, I do not enjoy shopping, tho I am sure we will hit some of the stores on Bar Harbor). We will be in town July 12-16
Other than the Pizza & Movie place, do you have any recommendations for non-nature activities?
Which of the 2 campgrounds in Acadia NP do you think will be better for our group?
I am interested in a day trip to Isle au Haut, but how to you get to Stonington in order to catch the ferry?
Is it worth a trip to Southwest Harbor with the girls, or will there not be much for them to do there?
Can the teenagers take the bus service on their own if they want to just do something without grownups? Would it be unsafe in any way?
Thanks in advance!
