Stars Over Sand Beach

Outdoors in Acadia National Park

Several times a week in the warmer months, the park hosts a free guided star-viewing session over Sand Beach. Check at one of the visitor centers for days and times. Dress warmly and bring a blanket for stretching out on the sand.

The Milky Way is a great swath across the sky here (one of the few places east of the Mississippi River where it can be so easily observed).
