Acadia National Park is located on Mount Desert Island off the coast of Maine, and resembles something of a secret wonderland, with granite cliffs, valleys, peaks, waterways, and miles of sprawling forest. The park receives two million visitors a year, so it is very popular (its popularity is justly deserved), but the miles upon miles of wide-open space means it definitely won’t be crowded. You can go for long rambles through serene forest, take sunrise hikes up peaks and down valleys, try skiing on the Nordic slopes, or a dip in the vast ocean! You will just love all the activities, and the beautiful backdrop will make them all the better. The places to stay near Acadia National Park are as beautiful as the scenery, so spoil yourself with a little something special!
