Nestled on the east coast, just south of the Frenchman Bay in Maine, lies the picturesque seaside town of Bar Harbor. Known for its stunning coastal beauty and its Victorian architecture, Bar Harbor is a gateway to the notable Acadia National Park, with options for hiking, cycling, and driving along its famous Park Loop Road. The town itself offers an array of delightful attractions including the Abbe Museum, the dynamic Downtown District full of tiny shops and restaurants serving delicious local fare such as lobster and blueberry pie, and the tranquil Shore Path offering a glimpse of local life in summer cottages and grand mansions.
Departing from Bar Harbor, scenic drives offer visitors the opportunity to explore the breathtaking landscapes of Maine at their own leisurely pace. The Acadia All-American Road trip lets you enjoy striking scenic views, serene picnic spots, and trails to lighthouses. Another recommended drive is the 40 miles to the Schoodic Peninsula, renowned for its rugged, wind-swept shoreline. Here, you can witness the Atlantic's power as waves crash against granite cliffs creating awe-inspiring scenes.
Around 45 minutes south of Bar Harbor by car, lies the 'Quietside' of Mount Desert Island. Home to the quaint villages of Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor, it is an ideal place to enjoy the serene beauty of the area away from the bustling crowds. It's also home to the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, one of the most photographed lighthouses in New England, offering a stunning view of the sunset.
