I love planning trips. Gone are the days when I buy a guidebook in advance of booking a flight. Nowadays I scour the internet to read travel blogs and websites for hotel recommendations, must-do activities and insider tips. To that end, I’ve found others’ itineraries and recommendations so helpful so I wanted to share a great long weekend Matt and I spent in Maine last summer in an easy-to-copy format.
Who should go on this trip: Active east coasters who want to go to a national park without flying west
When to go: Maine gets cold and windy, so this depends on your personal constitution. We went in July and I thought that was perfect
Is it expensive?: It doesn’t have to be. JetBlue offers relatively low fare flights from JFK to Portland. You could stay in a luxury hotel/B&B right in Bar Harbor or find something smaller further afield.
Here’s a 5 day/4 night plan for enjoying Acadia National Park.
