This was our first visit to Acadia National Park. The view from Cadillac Mountain is breath taking & a great photo opportunity. Great way to spend a day glad we came.

You can buy tickets at Testa's Restaurant on Main St. in Bar Harbor. Our tour left at I think 11. There are other tours after that as well. I'm sorry I didn't see this question sooner. I hope I'm not too late.
