From the steep cliffs of New England’s coast to the north of the State of Maine, the power of the sea manifests itself. The region is home to the Acadia National Park whose magnificent forests have made it a popular sightseeing destination.
Wealthy entrepreneurs were once attracted to the captivating town of Bar Harbor and had their summer homes there. Since then, the region has become a little less glamorous but idyllic scenery and picturesque areas such as Jordan Pond are still exceptionally beautiful.
As the name Indian Summer suggests, New England’s most well known season dates back to the golden years of the Native American Indian. The warm days at the beginning of autumn were once the most important time of the year for hunting because it was then that the region’s animals grazed prior to the onset of winter. According to legend, the strong dark red color of the leaves symbolized the blood of slaughtered bears. The ‘autumn summer’ was thus closely associated with the Native Indian hunters of old.
Even today, the Acadia National Park combines all the natural beauty of Maine in a unique way that captivates all those who experience its irresistible charm.
