No worries, the blog has not been forgotten. Over the past week and a half, I have been busy exploring Acadia National Park in Maine and surrounding areas such as Bar Harbor and Portland. With the foliage season around the corner, I wanted to give folks a jump start on what is coming up, and more importantly, to give some travel ideas to catch the beauty of fall and change of colors that come along with the season. Hike descriptions, as well as an Acadia travel guide, will be posted in the coming weeks.
Maine is a restrictive, yet travel-friendly state with a good handle on COVID-19. New England states with the addition of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut can visit quarantine free, while visitors from other states are required to receive a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours.
Acadia National Park foliage historically peaks in late September to early October. Visit the Maine Foliage website and follow the forecast for zone 2 which includes Acadia National Park.
Acadia and Bar Harbor combined have a lot to offer for all. Being that certain places are running at limited capacity, recommend booking reservations early for any tours and excursions.
- Boat rides (Whale Watching, Acadia Scenic Cruise, etc)
- Sea Kayaks
