Visit Cadillac Mountain for the best view.
Cadillac mountain offers the best view with its majestic dominance over the surrounding areas. The view at sunrise and sunset is breathtaking. they say Cadillac mountain gets the first sunrise in the US In the fall and winter.
Visit Sand Beach
Sand beach is really what the name says, it has beautiful clear water, great sand, great picnic area for the family but the water is freezing even in the middle of summer. swimming in spring and fall is definitely out of the question for me.
Check out Thunder Hole for great sounds
Listen to the great sound the cave makes when air is trapped in there by new waves.
