Acadia National Park ©
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.
Get in touch with nature at Perpendicular Trail and Beech Mountain Trail. Visit Little Hunters Beach and Echo Lake Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Acadia National Park: The Bold Coast (in Machias), Wonderland Trail (in Southwest Harbor) and Stonington Village (in Stonington). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Asticou Terraces / Thuya Garden, appreciate the extensive heritage of Ship Harbor Nature Trail, stroll through Flying Mountain Hiking Trail, and hike along Beech Cliff Loop.

Expect a daytime high around 70°F in September, and nighttime lows around 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
