Maine – Bar Harbor

We traveled to Maine with our group of travel friends.  We decided to split up the trip to go to three places; Bar Harbor, Booth Bay Harbor and Portland.  We flew into Portland and from there rented cars and drove to the house that we rented near Bar Harbor.  Our first stop was for dinner in Portland and we found the most adorable spot to eat in.  It was called Miss Portland and the food was pretty good.  We then stopped at the nearest Trader Joe’s to pick up food and drink to last for this portion of our trip.

The we drove a few hours to the house that we rented.  The house we rented was huge, but since we had 14 people to accommodate, it needed to be big:)

Bar Harbor is a town on Mount Desert Island. It serves as a gateway to the mountains and cliffs of Acadia National Park. Towering over the park, Cadillac Mountain has trails and views of the town, the bay and the Cranberry Islands. Sand Beach is ringed by mountains. From the town pier, the Shore Path winds along the bay overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Porcupine Islands.

There is so much to do in Acadia National Park.  Acadia National Park is a 47,000-acre Atlantic coast recreation area primarily on Maine’s Mount Desert Island. Its landscape is marked by woodland, rocky beaches and glacier-scoured granite peaks such as Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the United States’ East Coast. Among the wildlife are moose, bear, whales and seabirds.  Sorry for the short post this week, but please come back next week and I will go into more detail about Bar Harbor.
