My wife and I are considering taking a family vacation to Maine. We have 5 kids ages 4,5 ,8,10,12, and have a pop-up camper. I was thinking of the Acadia region.
The problem for us is that we've mostly been to the Rockies area for vacation, and that is fairly easy since that area is so much different than here in Michigan, there's a lot to do and see out there.
But the kids love living creatures, and would like nothing better than to spend all day wading through tide pools catching crabs and other critters.
My wife is concerned about weather. And what to do, since I think that Maine is somewhat similar to Michigan. (climate, forests, large body of water nearby)
Can anybody tell me : What is there to do in Maine with 5 small children? How much is there to do around the ocean (as far as tide pools, fishermen, harbors)? How's the weather in the summer along the coast?
Any thoughts, ideas, or stories about vacationing in maine beside those questions are also welcome! Thanks!
