Maine Leaves and Lobster HOP (Head Out Program)

September 27, 2021 - October 1, 2021

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 beauty is stunning!

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

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

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

Visit the beautiful Acadia National Park and learn about its history, geology, park wildlife, and make stops at Thunder Hole and also 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.

Board a lobster boat and have a unique, enjoyable tour of Bar Harbor. Watch and learn about the whales, sea lions, and lighthouses on a cruise tour. There may be sightings of Puffins, too, but most have migrated by September.

The Escapees RV Club is offering a wide arrange of fantastic excursions for your enjoyment!

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