On the 5th (Sat), don't miss a visit to Land Bridge to Bar Island, stroll through Bar Island Trails, and then explore the activities along Frenchman Bay.

First Eastern National Park

The first national park east of the Mississippi River, Acadia National Park draws visitors with its rugged landscape of ocean shoreline, low-slung granite mountains, dense woodlands, and pristine lakes.
Get in touch with nature at Cadillac Mountain and Jordan Pond Path Trailhead. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gorham Mountain Trail and Quiet Side Cafe & Ice Cream Shop. Take a break from Acadia National Park with a short trip to Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory in Prospect, about 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Wendell Gilley Museum, grab your bike and head to Carriage Roads, explore and take pictures at Park Loop Road, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Bubble Rock.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Acadia National Park trip planner.

Acadia National Park is very close to Bar Harbor. In September, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
