Despite the park closing the second day of the trip, our group coordinators worked very hard to provide enjoyable alternative activities. Bar Harbor is a very interesting and historical small harbor town. The coastal area is very picturesque. I would strongly recommend this trip.

If you are considering attending this program - stop thinking and just sign up. This region of the country is beautiful and the people are welcoming and friendly. I will go back again.
