I have been visiting Bar Harbor for 50 years. Been many beautiful places but non as breathtaking as the view overlooking Frenchman Bay. Either side from any place -- just breathtaking any time of year!!!!

Don't miss the beautiful views! The pier is a good spot to see the islands and you can take a sailboat ride on the Margaret Todd from there.
