The Charming Town Of Ellsworth, Maine Is Picture-Perfect For A Weekend Getaway

Approximately 30 minutes from bustling Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park lies the oft-overlooked town of Ellsworth, Maine. Located in the historic region of Acadia, a part of North America populated by the French from the early 17th century until the early 18th century, Ellsworth was settled in 1763 by an English group from southern Maine and New Hampshire who hoped to take advantage of the natural resources in the area. Modern travelers to this coastal New England town will find there are other reasons to visit Ellsworth in the 21st century. This northern Maine town more than makes up for its lack of notoriety through good food and drinks, historic charm, and activities for all ages.

While Ellsworth might not have the prestige or notoriety of its more-popular destinations on Desert Island to the south, visitors to this town will be sure to find good food, a charming place to rest their heads, and countless fun and interesting activities.
