About Bar Harbor, Maine

The rising sun lights the top of Cadillac Mountain before any other spot in the United States, and on island-dotted Penobscot Bay, Bar Harbor welcomes you. Tall ships unfurl their sails while seals and porpoises play in the wide blue bay. Admire the rugged coastline preserved in Acadia National Park. Then watch as a traditional lobster bake is prepared, and enjoy a cup of wild Maine blueberries.

Great stop. Small town that is easy to walk around. We did the Schooner sail here. That was fun but it was cold that day so we froze a little out on the water. Still glad we did it. Check out Bar Harbor Pop Corn. Interesting flavors and free samples of all of them. Would have liked to walk across the sand bar to Bar Island at low tide but the timing was wrong.

Bar Harbor is one of my favorite places in the eastern United States. The iconic coastline and the mountain views are spectacular, regardless of the season visited, if the harbor isn't socked in by fog. We were fortunate to visit on an equally spectacular fall day with 70-degree temperatures, clear skies, and light winds. Our lobster lunch was just the right touch to finish off our visit to this tourist favorite.
