Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island

— 5 nights
Bar Harbor is a town on Mount Desert Island in Hancock County, Maine, United States. Change things up with these side-trips from Bar Harbor: Mount Battie (in Camden), Belfast Harborwalk (in Belfast) and Stewart's Blueberries (in Stockton Springs). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Cadillac Mountain, identify plant and animal life at Shore Path, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and take a memorable drive along Park Loop Road.

For more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Bar Harbor day trip site.

New York City to Bar Harbor is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also fly; or drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from New York City in October, with highs in Bar Harbor at 59°F and lows at 42°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) so you can travel back home.

The Pine Tree State
The easternmost state in New England, Maine features an indented coastline and forested interior, carved eons ago by receding glaciers. Maine includes more lighthouses and quaint resort villages than you could ever hope to explore in a single trip, but the state is also one of the country's most sparsely populated, the majority of its land pristine and uninhabited wilderness. The temperate coastal regions, historically supported by fishing and lobstering, contain most of the state's urban centers and are the most popular spots in the state for holidays. The sea is the focus here, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that water plays an important role in the distinct character of the state, shaping its economy, tourism, cuisine, politics, sports, and art.
