    Posted comments about the area earlier. Check it out under "Browse" flag. I tried to copy and paste site, but this menu would not allow for some reason.

    If you are over 62 and planning to visit National Parks, be sure to get your Senior Pass. For a $10 pass fee you, and anybody in your car, get's free access to most National Parks, for the rest of your life!  America the Beautiful (U.S. National Park Service).

    First of all, it is ACADIA and a wonderful park! Best viewed in the fall when leaves change.

      702rugbyre, You are correct about the spelling and the fall.  There is also some beautiful scenery in the park but north of the island.  Summer can be very crowded in Bah Hahbah!

       

      Unfortunately, there is no Marriott property anywhere near the park.

       

      There is a nice Marriott in Halifax.

       

      As far as the National Parks pass goes, I've had one for a dozen years and have probably saved more than $500 with it.

        If you get a chance to go to Cape breton Highlands NP,beautiful. (BTW...I use to be a NP Warden there back in the late 80s).
