Maine is an ideal summer vacation destination, with the White Mountain National Forest stretching nearly 800,000 acres; Acadia National Park, the second most popular national park in the U.S.; and the coastal towns like Kennebunkport, summer home of the Bush family. Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born in Portland and writer Steven King pens his horror stories in Bangor.
