It's hard to believe that summer is almost over, especially since this is our first post of the season! The last few months have been a rollercoaster ride of frantically busy work schedules and existential crises. But we managed to fit in time to escape the city and enjoy the great outdoors. First stop: Acadia National Park in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine.
With its gorgeous mountain landscapes, granite cliffs, and crystal blue seasides visible around every corner, Acadia was the perfect setting for our Fourth of July weekend. We spent two days with close friends driving through the picturesque winding roads circling the park, pretending to be professional rock climbers while navigating and exploring the seaside cliffs, and capturing gorgeous sunsets at the peak of Cadillac Mountain.
And because Acadia is a manageable size and less crowded than other popular national parks, it's perfect if you're looking for a laid-back getaway that is neither too remote nor too action packed. The ideal destination for a long weekend.
