Come see why the state moto is “Maine, the way life should be.”

 

These rocky shores and carriage roads are yours to explore on this unique island-mountain-forest — Acadia National Park sprawls the rocky headlands of southern Maine’s Mount Desert Island, Schoodic Peninsula, Isle au Haut, and 16 other nearby islands. Every season brings something new to the park: trout fishing in the spring, hiking 120 miles of trails come summer, leaf-peeping vibrant colors in the fall, and cross-country skiing on quaint carriage roads in the winter. Drive the 27-mile Park Loop Road, take in the cobblestone beach shores, or hike Cadillac Mountain—the highest peak on the U.S. Atlantic coast.

You and other LDS Singles will get to enjoy all the views and trails of this protected land as well as beautiful fall weather, spectacular sunrises, and much more.  Come explore, taste, and enjoy all of the local charm you’ll find in Maine and historical Boston.

It’s more than just a trip to Acadia National Park…

When you join Cheri’s Travel Spot on this fun getaway you’ll have a complete Fall season New England experience with all the sights, tastes, smells, and even scary sounds of the region.
