One of the most beautiful places in the world is right in our backyard and next week starts a big celebration. Next Friday, July 8, will mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Acadia National Park.

A year-long celebration is planned for the anniversary. Planned activities are here, but we though we would get you ready by looking at some amazing Instagram shots from Acadia.

If you have never been, or it's been a while, make a plan to enjoy the beauty and majesty of what is Acadia National Park, this year!
