Downeast & Acadia

The first rays of dawn illuminate the West Quoddy Lighthouse each morning before reaching any other point in the U.S. The West Quoddy Lighthouse of Lubec is the eastern most lighthouse in the country, and the Bold Coast in which it lies belongs to Maine’s DownEast & Acadia Region.

The first rays of dawn illuminate the West Quoddy Lighthouse each morning before reaching any other point in the U.S. The West Quoddy Lighthouse of Lubec is the eastern most lighthouse in the country, and the Bold Coast in which it lies belongs to Maine’s DownEast & Acadia Region. Since Maine is the first state to rise each morning, we consider it our duty to make every day extraordinary. Visit Maine’s Downeast and Acadia region to see just how well we deliver on this promise.

Rising up from the coastal city of Bar Harbor, the beauty of Acadia’s Cadillac Mountain is like no other. There’s the clear blue Atlantic Ocean and its bays, with tree-lined mountains that rise triumphantly from the water along the coast as far as the eye can see. On a clear day atop this mountain, you’ll be able to see nearly 100 miles.

Surrounded by this much natural beauty, your spirit is buoyed, your heart content. You’re encircled on all sides by the 20 mountaintops of Mount Desert Island, the 120 miles of hiking trails in Acadia National Park and 55 miles of Rockefeller-built carriage roads, hidden by the color-soaked trees below.

The communities surrounding the Bays of Passamaquoddy and Cobscook are built on an unbreakable bond with the sea. A central hub for everything nautical, the waves of Pasamaquoddy and Cobscook Bays lap the shores of Eastport where you’ll find a quaint coastal town with a thriving arts scene that happens to house the East Coast’s deepest port and America’s only remaining mill producing stone ground mustard.

The village of Grand Lake Stream is home to the most concentrated population of Maine guides in the state. It is truly an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise and offers its visitors unparalleled fishing and hunting opportunities, as well as an ideal location for relaxing nature appreciation.

Maine’s Downeast & Acadia Region is full of surprises: unexplored scenic byways, a ferry ride across the Bay at high tide, chance encounters with Maine wildlife and a way to experience the esteemed seafaring heritage of which we are so proud. We greet each new day on behalf of the entire country, and vow to always live up to that honor.
