One of the most visited parks in the country, Acadia National Park provides every kind of recreational opportunity that a mountain retreat should offer - and then some. Centrally located to the island's towns and villages, Acadia National Park is a worthwhile location to plan a full day around, and a convenient spot to branch off into the excitement of Bar Harbor or the milder vibes of Northeast Harbor depending on your mood. With easy access to the Somes Sound and an array of water vessels from which to chart a course, a day on the water is just as easy to achieve as a day in the mountains from your Mount Desert vacation home. Set sail on anything from a kayak to a yacht and keep an eye out for whales, seals, and other friendly marine residents drawn to the cool waters of coastal Maine, or forge a path to Cadillac Mountain for the earliest sunrises in the Continental U.S. It's the perfect site for a soul-soothing getaway that's sure to delight the senses.
