When it’s time for a vacation, one of the things that you need to do is to make sure your vehicle is up to the trip, especially if you are going to be traveling in remote areas including the mountains.

And, if you don’t plan on a new car this year, call us to schedule a service appointment so that we can check your vehicle and make necessary repairs if needed.
Acadia National Park
Acadia National Park is a 47,000-acre piece of woods and mountains that was designated as a national park in 1919. If you want to spend some time getting a good workout and relaxing, visit this park to get the best of both worlds. Climb mountain peaks, hike woodland trails and explore the coastline. Enjoy kayak trips in the many lakes or drive the carriage road system to see the stone-faced bridges. Don’t forget your camera – you’ll want pictures of everything including the waterfalls.
Look for peregrine falcons on Echo Lake Beach, watch for moose and black bear and relax on Sand Beach. You can also take the Island Explorer bus system around Acadia’s Park Loop Road.
Climb Mount Washington on the Cog Railway – the train takes you to the summit of the highest point in the Northeast. The cog train travels at about 3 miles per hour at a 40-degree angle up the White Mountains. The trip up takes about an hour while the trip down takes about 40 minutes. Visit the gift shop and be sure to bring your camera for some of the best scenery shots you can find.
Visit Mystic Seaport to see a working preservation shipyard, a recreation of a 19th century coastal village and exhibit galleries. Things you can do include taking a carriage ride through the village, exploring a cooperage, a lobster shack and the Fishtown Chapel. Listen to musicians singing sea shanties and learn tons about the 1800s-era New England Coast.
Visit Stowe to see the old covered bridge and sight see. Stop at some of the 40-plus restaurants and shop on the old-fashioned Main Street. Be sure to visit Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory and the Cabot Annex Store.
