The first national park east of the Mississippi River, Acadia National Park draws visitors with its rugged landscape of ocean shoreline, low-slung granite mountains, dense woodlands, and pristine lakes.
Ship Harbor Nature Trail and Wendell Gilley Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Echo Lake Beach and Heart of Acadia Loop. Venture out of the city with trips to Asticou Terraces / Thuya Garden (in Northeast Harbor) and Wonderland Trail (in Southwest Harbor). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Beech Mountain Trail, explore the landscape on two wheels at Carriage Roads, admire the natural beauty at Charlotte Rhoades Garden and Butterfly Park, and trek along Perpendicular Trail.

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Bangor International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Acadia National Park are 17°C, while nighttime lows are 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
