Across 100 miles as the crow flies from Bucksport to Calais is an unbelievable 2,330 miles of coastline. With 5,600 square miles from end to end, DownEast Acadia offers visitors lots of room for exploration.
The Blue Hill Peninsula is home to historic Castine, industrious Stonington, and artsy Blue Hill. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are at the heart of Mount Desert Island. Anglers will love downtime in Grand Lakes. Ellsworth is a crossroads for commerce, while each morning the sun rises first over Bay of Fundy and Campobello.
From the heights of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge to the depths of the Old Sow—the largest whirlpool on our side of the planet—each DownEast Acadia community is worthy of a visit.
