Maine: Quoddy Head State Park

Quoddy Head is located on the coast of Maine and boasts a bright red-and-white-striped lighthouse. Commissioned by Thomas Jefferson and built in 1808, you can still climb the lighthouse today to take in the spectacular views. You might even spot some migrating whales.

Maryland: Assateague State Park

Maryland’s oceanfront state park is on a barrier island between the Atlantic and Sinepuxent Bay. The two-mile-long island offers sandy beaches, coves, and marshes that visitors can explore by kayak.

The one thing that absolutely CAN NOT be missed is the park’s herd of wild horses, which you may view from a distance.

Massachusetts: Walden Pond State Park

Fanatics of Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden” should visit this park, home to the famously tranquil Walden Pond and Walden Woods. If you DO happen to be a Thoreau enthusiast, you can also see a representation of Henry David Thoreau’s house.

This area is ideal for a peaceful escape to mull over life and its meaning. Visitors can stroll or hike along trails circling the pond, unwind on the beach, go swimming, bird watching, or canoe in the pond.
