Kids will love the adventure of getting out on a real working lobster boat with Penobscot Narrows Lobstering Tours, or heading out into the waters with Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company. 

The beautiful nature calls with Acadia National Park and Swan’s Island, just to name a few, and active families will enjoy those family fun experiences like arrr Pirates Cove Bar Harbor and Family Ice Center.

Skiing in Maine? Absolutely! Snowcoast Snow Park has got that covered! Little monkeys in the family? Head on down to Monkey Trunks Zipline and High Ropes Adventure! Perhaps you have some history buffs? Step back in time with 19th Century Willowbrook Village!

Oh yes, don’t forget Perry’s Nut House…but you'll find out what that is when you get there!
