For summer 2018, we are again offering an opportunity to experience the Best of Acadia with a week’s stay at College of the Atlantic’s oceanside campus. Our Best of Acadia Adventure combines our Best of Acadia Senior College Speaker Series in the mornings and then we will take you out for an afternoon of sightseeing and local experience. We will be bringing you to some of our favorite spots to show you a sampling of what makes the Mount Desert Island area so special.

Some of the places you will be visiting include Acadia National Park, the Mount Desert Land and Garden Preserve,  Seal Cove Auto Museum, a ferry ride to the Schoodic Peninsula, the Sullivan Falls, and a Frenchman Bay Schooner Sunset Cruise on Friday evening.
