Saint Croix Island: before Jamestown, before Plymouth. Discover a little island with a big history where, in 1604, an enduring French presence began in North America. Stroll the mainland interpretive trail—among bronze sculptures of French settlers and Passamaquoddy people—to learn the trials of the French settlement on the island. Enjoy ranger-guided programs, indoor exhibits, artifacts, and a Junior Ranger program for kids. Only 2.5 hours from Acadia National Park.

Saint Croix Island International Historic Site is one of three National Park Service units. Only 120 miles from Acadia National Park, it's the only international historic site in the national park system.

From mid-May to mid-October, bilingual park staff offer interpretive walks and talks. Visit the park's website for dates of operation. www.nps.gov/sacr
