Filled with more shops, restaurants, and hotels than all other towns on the island combined, Bar Harbor is the unofficial capital of Mount Desert Island. Its narrow streets and ramshackle buildings, perched on a gentle hill overlooking the harbor, make it the quintessential Maine Coastal Town. Ice cream shops, trinket stores, and the smell of fresh seafood round out the effect. To some it’s a tourist trap. To others it’s a vibrant slice of Downeast Maine. No matter what your take, chances are you’ll end up in Bar Harbor at some point on your trip. Learn more about Bar Harbor
