Erstklassige Parks

National Park
“Acadia National Park is one of the most beloved parks in the world! There is something for everyone- lots of hiking- from very easy to extreme. There is great biking on the carriage trails. And when the restaurants are open- tea and popovers at the Jordan Pond House are a perfect way to top off a spectacular day! You can drive a car to the top of Cadillac Mountain- so everyone can experience the view from the top. ”

“Thuya Garden is a gorgeous flowering garden located on a granite hillside overlooking Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine. It was originally designed and built in 1956 - 1961 by Charles K. Savage, a long-time resident of Northeast Harbor, along with financial support from John D. Rockefeller. The garden exhibits an English style influence with special input from Beatrix Farrand so that it will incorporate the unique character of the Maine coast. A variety of annuals and perennials line the two long sides of the garden. An open observation pavilion sits at the top of a slight incline on the north end overlooking the main garden that cascades down to a shallow reflecting pool below. Thuya Lodge was constructed from 1912 - 1916 by summer resident Joseph H. Curtis, its owner and Boston based landscape architect. The garden was constructed in an orchard also owned by Curtis. A memorial in his honor is located part way up the Asticou Terrace Trail. Thuya got its name from the abundance of white cedar (Thuya Occidentalis) located in the area.”

“Right down the end of Fernald Point Road. . Takes only about 12 minutes to get to the top. Fantastic views. Have your Acadia National Park pass visable in your car. Easy hike but with a few rocks to scramble over a bit, near the top; not difficult.”

Beach
“Our favorite public beach in the summers. We like the long stretch of shallow water which is safe for young kids to play. Still cold in the summer but the kids seem not to mind. Not as busy as other beaches. Daughter likes to play on a nice stream that runs across the beach into the ocean. ”

“Visit Jordan Pond House for tea and popovers. This restaurant is nestled inside beautiful Acadia National Park. Much more touristy than the Asticou but fun nonetheless. ”
