Maine & Acadia National Park - Acadia National Park & Down East (PDF Chapter)
This is the Acadia National Park & Down East chapter from Lonely Planet’s Maine & Acadia National Park guidebook.
Without question, this is quintessential Maine: as you head further up the coast toward Canada, the peninsulas seem to narrow, jutting further into the sea. The fishing villages get smaller; the lobster pounds are closer to the water.
- hike up Cadillac Mountain, relax on Sand Beach, and enjoy afternoon tea at the Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park
- overnight in a Victorian B&B, kayak off the coast and admire wooded lanes and historic architecture in Castine
- eat fresh lobster in Stonington, followed by a boat trip to picturesque Isle au Haut
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Acadia National Park & Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Cranberry Isles, Blue Hill Peninsula, Blue Hill, Brooklin, Castine, Deer Isle & Stonington, Isle au Haut, Machias Bay Area, Lubec.
