Adventure: Acadia National Park, ME

4 of 17

Maine’s coastal park is a can’t-miss for adventuresome clans: climb the iron-rung “ladders” along the 0.8-mile Beehive Trail for views over rugged Sand Beach, then board a propane-powered Island Explorer bus for a free ride along the craggy coast. Park superintendent Sheridan Steele often ends hikes at the Jordan Pond House, known for its fresh popovers and lobster stew. —Kathryn O’Shea-Evans
