Boats at Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor is the commercial center for Arcadia National Park. It's where most of the places to eat, stay, and shop are located. It has a nice harbor that often has a cruise ship moored in it. The other villages, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Seal Cove, and Bass Harbor are also interesting.

We stayed at the Tide Watch Cabins during our visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The view of Hulls Cove from our cabin was great. We were amazed at the size (10 feet) of the tides here.

Sailboat in Bar Harbor

The focal point of Bar Harbor is Frenchman's Bay where the boats are moored. There was a fair bit of activity when we visited. Boats were taking people back to the cruise ship after a hard day of shopping.

The main street has an interesting mix of shops. Even had a fortune teller.
