Bar Harbor is a town on Mount Desert Island in Hancock County, Maine, United States. On the 12th (Fri), trek along Champlain Mountain & Beehive Loop Trail, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Saviour's Church :, then take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and finally look for all kinds of wild species at Shore Path. Keep things going the next day: examine the collection at The Seal Cove Auto Museum, then explore the landscape on two wheels at Carriage Roads, and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Cadillac Mountain.
