Frenchmans Bay in Ba rHarbor, Maine Jan 19, 2017

There's lots to see and do in BAR HARBOR the gateway to Acadia National Park. Twenty miles south of Ellsworth via Route 3, Bar Harbor offers restaurants, shops, boutiques and galleries of all kinds, to visitors staying in elegant inns, hotels, B & B's, RV or Camp sites.

Sail Frenchman's Bay aboard the "Margaret Todd", with Cadillac Mountain in the background. Take an excursion boat to whale-watch and sightsee or cruise to Canada via high-speed vessels.

In Acadia National Park which straddles Mount Desert Island, you can hike or bike along 120 miles of scenic paths.

Called Eden when founded in 1796 and renamed in 1921 for the sand bar which had accumulated in the bay, Bar Harbor's first Hotel was built in 1856, many others followed by 1880 and the town had acquired its national grand resort reputation. Affluent summer residents built sumptuous 'cottages' along "Millionaire's Row".
