About the Area

Bar Harbor is likely the best-known town on Mount Desert Island (MDI) as it is a popular vacation destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. Originally known as Eden, Bar Harbor boasts a vibrant year-round community with many shops, restaurants, and galleries. It is a busy seasonal port-of-call to many national and international cruise lines and is the main hub for the Island Explorer bus — a free service provided in the summer months by LL Bean — that shuttles visitors all over Mount Desert Island and beyond. Starting from Bar Harbor one can tour MDI by boat, kayak, bus, or trolley. Steeped in history, the village is home to The Jackson Laboratory, world renown for genetics research, and College of the Atlantic as well as many notable points of interest such as the 1932 Criterion Theatre, historic “cottages” built along the rugged shores, the Shore Path and Balance Rock, as well as two charming village parks. Bar Harbor has everything a year-round or seasonal visitor could expect to find yet retains that small-town appeal.
