Define Your Own True Maine

The glories of warm sun-filled summer days and breeze-cooled evenings. Hills ablaze with color and brilliant, canopied roads as Fall rolls in. Winter draped shores and lanes where the peace and solitude are broken only by the sigh of the wind and the crunch of the snow underfoot. The cycle of nature starts again with Spring's first blooms. The peaceful sound of waves lapping the shoreline. The fun of a local festival filled with food, music, and local character. The thrill of experiencing nature up close. These are the indelible experiences that define True Maine in DownEast Acadia.
