It's not only the tallest mountain in Acadia but is the highest point along North America's eastern seaboard and from October to March it's the first spot in the U.S. to see the morning sun. It may be windy up at the top but a walk up to the summit rewards you with dramatic 360-degree views of Bar Harbor, Frenchman Bay, and the Cranberry Islands. Then it's on to another natural wonder: Thunder Hole. This small inlet is famous for the thunderous clap that occurs when seawater crashes into the tiny inlet and water is forced out. If you decide to take a photo, be prepared to get soaked, the waterspout can explode as high as 40 feet! On your way to the restaurant you'll travel through picturesque Seal Beach. Once at the restaurant you'll enjoy a buffet lunch that includes lobster (steak is available for those who do not prefer lobster), clam chowder, corn on the cob, potato salad, coleslaw, and your choice of blueberry dessert or cake.
