  • Stop for a second, take a moment and look around you. Everywhere on the island is beautiful!

  • Swimming in the ocean at unreasonable temperatures!! Lots of yummy maple syrup treats + blueberry treats!! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful views!! On a clear night, starry skies like I had never before seen!

  • Acadia is literally your backyard, so I highly suggest exploring. Hike, bike, swim, go find out about this amazing national treasure of a place that you get to live and go to school at. Plus I think that the hiking/camping trips every weekend have been essential for me to get a mental recharge that keeps me going with my class work during the week. This is especially true in a year where most activities are limited due to COVID-19.

    Also Jordan Pond Ice Cream in Bar Harbor is definitely worth it :)
