Acadia National Park


Acadia is almost completely surrounded by sea in southeastern Maine and occupies much of Mount Desert Island. Acadia, the first National Park established east of the Mississippi River, was created by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919. It is home to Cadillac Mountain, the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic Coast. Hikers can follow the rugged coastlines dotted with historic lighthouses, discover glaciers and lakes, and ascend granite peaks. Acadia National Park protects more than 47,000 acres of land that are rich with plants and animals.

Fun Fact: Cadillac Mountain is the first place in the U.S. to see sunrise at certain times of the year.
