Bar Harbor Maine

Any tips? Must hit restaurants or bars?

We're heading up there at the end of this month ---- staying at the Harborside Hotel so we'll be right where the action is. We plan on hiking Arcadia, hitting Cadillac Mtn, and either a lobster boat or whale boat ride, so those bases are covered.

Any lintel is appreciated

Bring a bike.

Lots of great gravel roads that are better enjoyed on two wheels.

Take route 1 home instead of the highway. Beautiful coastal drive. Stop at Red's in Wiscasset for the best Lobster Roll (1 pound of Lobster in each roll with Kate's butter).

Good tip one Route 1. We're planning on taking that on the way up and back.We're in no hurry so we plan to enjoy all the scenery.
I'll be sure and look into Red's

Re: Bar Harbor Maine

It's a wonderful spot. Indeed - take a bike (not a road bike). Go into the park early in the AM as parking is crazy and usually filled by 10am. Utilize the bus system. Hike the coastline trail. I find all the carriage  road bridges very interesting. We stay down in Seal Harbour as it's quiet down there and there is a little beach.

Go now, in a few years it will all be under water now that we have pulled out of the Paris Climate accord

Take a plane the ride takes forever. Pretty domestic thing to do.
