The Beautiful Maine Town That’s Surrounded By Water On 3 Sides

There’s no denying that there’s truly something magical about Bar Harbor. This charming town of 5,400 sits nestled along Frenchman Bay, surrounded by breathtaking nature. This place may be known as the gateway to Acadia National Park, but it’s an absolutely delightful destination all on its own.

Bar Harbor is definitely one of Maine’s finest gems. But since it can be pretty crowded in the summer, you may want to pass the time with some of these summer day trips until autumn.
