The gateway to Acadia National Park is the scenic town of Bar Harbor, which offers the perfect opportunity to relax and disconnect while in Maine. Hiking abounds in this small town, whose natural beauty is unmatched in most of the other coastal towns of the state.


Kennebunkport is the gem of Maine’s southern coast. Beautiful, sandy beaches are a great place to soak up the sun in Kennebunkport after spending the afternoon wandering through the town’s scenic downtown with a number of shops, restaurants, and historical sites.
