Day Trips

Groovin’ by Pato Banton

Many of our new guests are coming to the Acadia- Downeast area for the first time. Some haven’t even heard of Acadia National Park yet when they make initial contact with us. So for all you newbies and those who have been to  Maine, but have focused your visit on Mt. Desert Island, this page is for you.

The slide show above is a collection of photos I’ve gathered over the years on our own day trips with a few stock photos of events. It’s just a smidgeon of the fun, joy and beauty we’ve found in exploring beyond our borders. We like to take the Maine Gazeteer with us and comb it for little beaches and nature walks that we haven’t been to yet, especially. Mostly we head downeast on Route 1, away from the summer crowds of Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. It’s a treasure hunt that we love dearly and look forward to. It’s March 9th as I’m writing this and I was looking ahead at the week and wondering about taking a day trip to Lubec and Eastport…

Did you boogey with Pato? I hope so!
