Photo tour: Acadia National Park

Summer is prime time to visit a national park, and it’s also one of the best times of year to enjoy all that New England has to offer.

At Maine’s Acadia National Park, you can get the best of both with just one getaway. With nearly 50,000 acres of sandy shores, mountaintops and hiking trails, you won’t be at a loss for adventures.

Plus, with sights like these, why wouldn’t you want to escape to Acadia this summer?
