Jordan Pond and the Bubbles in Acadia National Park

As beautiful as it might seem, outdoor enthusiasts and their pets are not allowed to wade in the clear waters of Jordan Pond. Some types of boating are permitted in the pond, which sits between the Penobscot Mountain and two mountains known as the "Bubbles."

In childhood and adulthood, Franklin D. Roosevelt summered on Campbobello Island with his family. His visits grew less frequent after he contracted polio, but it was still an important place to him.

Today, Roosevelt Campobello International Park serves as a memorial to FDR and a symbol of cooperation between the U.S. and Canada. Across the 2,800 acres of park land, there are eight miles of walking trails and 8.4 miles of driving roads. The landscape consists of forests, bogs, forests and beaches with picnic areas scattered throughout. Plan your visit to Roosevelt Cottage to see select rooms on display >>

Saint Croix Island

International Historic Site, Calais, ME

Due to freezing temperatures and harsh conditions, 35 of 79 men died during Pierre Dugua's French expedition in the winter of 1604-1605, which they spent on Saint Croix Island. Although the men moved on by the summer when the survivors' health improved, their brief settlement on the island is significant because it marked the permanent prescence of the French in North America. Learn about walking the accessible, self-guided trail that features historical displays along the way >>
