Rugged, Picturesque Acadia
A Gift to the NationAcadia exists thanks to the efforts of private citizens who donated land to keep the area safe from development. The park marked its 100th birthday in July 2016.
Cadillac's Famous First LightCadillac Mountain is the highest peak on the Eastern Seaboard, and from mid-October to early March, it is the first place in the U.S. where visitors can see the sun rise.
Living ColorThe park's birch, aspen, poplar and maple trees produce bright foliage displays each fall, making Acadia a classic New England leaf-peeping destination.
The Park That 'Still Has Stars'Acadia has some of the darkest night skies on the East Coast with exceptional stargazing, thanks to its remote location surrounded by ocean.
