Acadia National Park is a stunning national treasure on the coast of Maine in the USA. Acadia Magic, this “insider's” vacation guide covers all of the best places to see and the towns and villages in the Acadia Region from Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island to Winter Harbor on the Schoodic Peninsula. Wherever you choose, the views are spectacular and nature abounds. No wonder this is one of the most visited parks in the United States and in all of North America. All the beauty of Maine comes together in Acadia National Park. Mountains, conifers, and wildlife meet the ocean in a spectacle that, once seen, is never forgotten. The Acadia Magic website is created by Greg Hartford, photographer & author who wrote "this website... was born of a deeply rooted love I have for the land, the sea, the mountains, and its people, and the personal desire I have to share its beauty with others." It is truly a wonderful way to explore the area.

Acadia National Park
Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 6.24.31 AM
People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery.

Bass Harbor Lighthouse
bassharbor-0174
Bass Harbor Head Light: A Gorgeous Cliffside Setting ~ Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author: "This is easily one of the most, if not the most, photographed lighthouse in New England. Aside from the fact that it is easily accessed by vehicle or bus, it is in a National Park, and in a stunning cliffside location on Mount Desert Island in Maine, the Vacationland State. There are a few different vantage points. Keep in mind that tides can vary considerably here, and that the angle of the sun, relative to the horizon and the ocean side of the lighthouse, changes widely depending on the season or time of year. During the summer months, it sets behind the lighthouse, if you have ventured down the cliff staircase to get to the ocean level view. When the sun is behind the lighthouse, make sure that you let in more light if you want the buildings and cliff visible."

Asticou Azalea Garden: The beauty of the Azalea Garden changes and evolves throughout the year. A flowering cherry tree heralds the start of the season in mid-May, followed by azaleas and rhododendrons in many hues in late May through June. July blooms include Japanese iris, smoke bush, rosebay rhododendron, and the fragrant sweet azalea. August is quiet and serene, accented by blooming water lilies, and in September and October the garden glows with the colors of fall.

This is a very solid, U.S. Coast Guard inspected 40 foot passenger boat owned and operated by Sail Acadia / Downeast Friendship Sloop Charters.

Beal's Lobster Pier
Screen shot 2014-11-20 at 10.48.17 AM
A year-round, family-owned, working fish and lobster pier. If you swing by , you’ll experience a lot of the same things that you would’ve seen more than 80 years ago – fishermen splicing lines, tying off boats, and hauling in nets and traps full of the freshest seafood around. If you want to bring lobsters, the best place to buy them is from Beale’s Lobster Pier, which is at the end of Clark Point Rd. Ask them to put the lobsters in a styrofoam box with frozen gel packs or dry ice to keep the lobsters cool. When you get to the island you can put them in a storage cage which is kept underwater so the lobsters stay alive. (Lobsters must be cooked live). Details about this are described in the House Manual.

Jordan Pond House
Screen shot 2014-11-14 at 9.51.38 AM
Jordan Pond House has been serving popovers and tea since the 1890s when Nellie McIntire began the tradition. The original building burned down in 1979. Upon completion of the current building in 1982, tea on the lawn has been an uninterrupted summer tradition. Afternoon tea with popovers remains a popular, not to be missed tradition on a visit to Acadia. Reservations, especially during lunch and the very busy teatime, will greatly reduce your wait and give you a more relaxing experience. If you can’t make a reservation, the shortest waits for tables are before 11:30am or after 4pm. Our menu includes the traditional favorites of lobster stew, house made ice cream, and freshly squeezed lemonade.

Baker Island Lighthouse
Screen shot 2014-11-22 at 5.45.36 AM
In 1812, William and Hannah Gilley moved with their three children to 123-acre Baker Island, situated four miles off Mount Desert Island. With a rocky coastline that often made landings impossible, Baker Island was unclaimed and unoccupied, so, according to Charles W. Elliot, author of John Gilley – One of the Forgotten Millions, the family “simply took possession of it.” Baker Island is the outermost of the five Cranberry Isles, located at the entrance to Southwest Harbor and named for the bright red berries found over much of the islands in the fall. The names of the other four isles are: Great Cranberry, Little Cranberry, Sutton, and Bear.
