    Mansions and majestic hotels serve as reminders of Bar Harbor’s past. Today, visitors kayak, explore Acadia National Park, go bird or whale-watching, and enjoy salty sea air and sandy beaches.

    Acadia National Park is a must with its granite cliffs, sand and cobble stone beaches, and glacier carved mountains. The park offers over 120 mile of hiking and biking trails.

    Sea kayaking at its finest as you glide among the islands of Frenchman Bay, seeing seals, porpoises, bald eagles and other wildlife. Or why not spend a few hours whale watching including humbacks, finbacks as well as dolphins and sharks.

    Take a scenic flight over Acadia National Park, Somes Sound and Cadillac mountain and of course the beautiful island lighthouses.

    Stroll through the quaint town and be sure to stop for a taste of fresh lobster or a home made clam chowder.
