Acadia National Park

First Eastern 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. The park's location in the far northeastern reaches of the United States gives it the occasional distinction of being the first place in the country to see the sunrise. Acadia is also home to the tallest mountain on the eastern seaboard, and the park's 19,000 hectares (47,000 acres) provide plenty of things to do, including hiking and biking. Although the park sits about a three-hour drive from Maine's largest city, Portland, the drive past scenic coves and through placid coastal towns gives you a good idea of why the state slogan remains, "The Way Life Should Be." Explore the family-friendly attractions of Acadia National Park and add them to your vacation plans using our United States day trip app.
