Explore Maine's rugged coast at Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor. This park is just six hours north of Boston, spans several islands, and includes a number of mountains, an ocean shoreline, woodlands, trails, historic sites and lakes for you to enjoy.
Take a drive along the picturesque Park Loop Road where tall cliffs plummet into the crashing surf or hike up Cadillac Mountain for spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Ride across Rockefeller's Roads, or bike across Eagle Lake Loop for more excitement where you can explore the Isleford Historical Museum or Wild Gardens of Acadia nature and flora preserve.
Acadia National Park also offers boat tours that take you to the historic Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse. Perched atop a plateau, this landmark offers magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean and is the perfect place to see peregrine falcons dance and soar in the sky or watch enormous whales spout water.
