“So Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The village green is a wonderful place filled with shops, restaurants and art galleries. Most of all is the great free bus service that they have to different parts of Arcadia and Mount Dessert. Take a ride on one of the shuttles to find out which areas you want to further explore. The National Parks Service Information is located there where they are happy to assist you and give you valuable information about the sights.

“What a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Few village greens can boast a view like this one overlooking the busy harbour. A pleasant place to sit when the sun shines.

“Hub/Shopping/Restaurants/Transportation Pick-Up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The place is all things listed in this review's title. The green is a pleasant little centralized spot in Bar Harbor where you can shop, eat or pick up a bus. In the immediate proximity there's an information center, cinema, brewery, numerous restaurants and plenty of inns/bed and breakfasts. It's a cozy, quaint little area that the city keeps very clean and orderly.

Little bit crowded on the weekend,.. but hey it's summer time. Other than that it's nice little downtown with plenty restaurants and stores.
