Maine Leaves and Lobster HOP 2024 1

Location: Bar Harbor, Maine

The best time to visit Maine is September, after the summer crowds have left but before the temperatures drop. Maine landscapes are quaint and beautiful, and its coastal area is stunning!

You can feel the crisp morning air and see Mother Nature’s abundant beauty in the vibrant colors of the fall leaves. The dogwood, red oak and maples turn red and burgundy; hickory, birch and elm change to gold and yellow; witch hazel and mountain maples are reddish-orange, and the white oak and sumac are purple. As autumn leaves grace the hillsides and mountaintops, you have painted scenery that is unmatched anywhere else in the world!

Visit the beautiful Acadia National Park and learn about its history, geology and park wildlife while stopping at Thunder Hole and Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the East Coast.

Tour a fjord named Somes Sound, which runs deep into Mount Desert Island and is one of the main sites at Acadia National Park. The Sound nearly splits the island in two.

Hop aboard a boat and have a unique, enjoyable tour of Bar Harbor. Watch and learn about the whales, sea lions and lighthouses on a cruise tour, and be ready for possible sightings of puffins, too!




The Escapees RV Club offers many fantastic excursions for your enjoyment!

Don’t forget to bring your camera and binoculars for this wonderful Fall Foliage HOP!

In the evenings, you can sit outside with new and old Escapees friends, watching the vibrant colors of the sunset spread across the horizon.

Bring binoculars to watch native and migratory birds, such as Bald Eagles, Osprey, Peregrine Falcons, Shorebirds, Warblers and Flycatchers, to name a few.
